Personalized Learning
in action

Personalized learning is not just a buzz word. The evidence is in the dramatic shift in how students and teachers approach and celebrate learning and teaching.

Personalized learning is powered by technology – you can personalize learning to a degree without technology, but the ability to collaborate and access relevant learning tools requires devices. The difference in personalized learning is not the device, but in how teachers approach their work and their expectation to meet each student’s needs.

Students of all abilities thrive in this environment because they are held to a personal measurement of growth – not to an automated curriculum that must be delivered sequentially.

Leading Personalized Learning

Leading organizational transformation can be isolating work, particularly for leaders. This leadership series is specifically designed for principals, teacher leaders, and district leaders to provide the support and community needed to initiate and sustain transformational personalized learning work in their schools and districts. The cohort will provide leaders with the strategies and skills necessary to lead this work, including split-screen leadership – simultaneously leading this effort while managing in a traditional environment. Participants are encouraged to participate as part of a school or district team.
