Personalized Learning

Educators are finding traditional classroom structures nonviable. Students are more likely to succeed academically, emotionally, and behaviorally when they are supported as individuals. Personalized learning structures—made increasingly available through technology and online opportunities—empower teachers and students to take charge of their education experiences. In student-centered classrooms, students meet core standards as they experience online and blended classes, flipped learning, and a variety of other approaches that allow them to learn at their own pace, in a way that matches their own needs and interests. These resources will show you how to support personalized learning in order to maximize student engagement and achievement.
