0:00 / 0:00

Today's learners are vastly different from past generations. Are you prepared to meet their needs?

Education Service Center Region 12 has adopted a Digital Convergence Initiative designed to assist our region’s schools in making the fundamental change needed to meet the needs of today’s learners. We refer to this initiative as transformED. We are transforming our professional development delivery system to a more personalized approach that incorporates a blended learning model and flexible learning spaces.
