Segment 1:

Combine technology, self-paced learning, college courses and a classroom teacher and you’ve got Innovations High School, the latest educational offering from Salt Lake City School District. The idea is to create a blended learning environment, mixing the flexibility of a digital curriculum with the structure and guidance of a traditional classroom experience. Is this what the high school of the future looks like? On Thursday, we discuss how technology is changing education as we know it.

Guests:

  • Ken Grover, principal, Innovations High School
  • Dr. Christopher Picard, Provost and Chief Academic Officer, Salt Lake Community College

Segment 2:

Forget child brides, Warren Jeffs and the FDLS. The Dargers – Joe, Alina, Vicki and Valerie – look very much like an average American family…except for the three moms. Choosing not to live in an isolated polygamous community, the Dargers openly talk about their faith and family dynamics in hopes of making polygamy better understood and more socially accepted. On Thursday, we hear about their lifestyle and why polygamy works for them.
