Personalized Learning: Turning Lofty Aspirations Into Specific District Policy

Date and Time: 
Thursday, December 11, 2014 02:00 EST to 03:00 am EST
Speakers: 
Andy Calkins, deputy director, Next Generation Learning Challenges

"Personalized learning" seems to be everywhere these days—in the instructional goals set by school districts, in state and federal policy, and in the promises made by educational technology companies trying to do business with schools. In recent years, school officials have sought clarity on what real personalized learning looks like—in the hope that the guidance will provide more specific and useful information to the K-12 community.

This webinar will examine what a growing number of school and technology advocates have identified as the core elements of personalized learning. They see the foundation of personalized learning encompassing not only instruction tailored to individual students' needs, but also a rethinking of the overall learning environment in schools. Our guests will examine the core elements of personalized learning, and present examples of what it looks like in a district trying to better meet students’ academic needs.
