Ed Surge: How Redbird’s Helping to Reimagine #blendedlearning and Drive Growth in Puerto Rico
The U.S. commonwealth of Puerto Rico experienced some of the most impressive economic growth in the world in the second half of the 20th century. In order to successfully drive a new economic surge, the island is working on overhauling its education system so that it can develop 21st century professionals ready to compete in the information economy. Ed Surge recently profiled Academia del Perpetuo Socorro, a traditional private school with a long reputation of academic excellence, as they envisioned and implemented a comprehensive, long-term blended learning initiative. Their work could spearhead transformation among many other Puerto Rican schools (potentially in the third biggest public school district in the country).
