They participated in workshops that addressed essential topics including professional development strategies to support principals and teachers, design thinking, and effective use of data to support instruction.

Since then, fellows have engaged in design workshops with their district leadership teams, facilitated by Education Elements, to examine how different personalized learning models might help them address their present educational challenges. The program will culminate in a leadership dinner in Washington DC this October.

Why participate?  Here are some selected comments from the first round of applications:

“I feel that educating our staff about personalized learning and creating a systemic plan for its implementation could be instrumental in best ensuring the technology is being utilized in meaningful ways to increase student achievement and reduce achievement gaps.”

8 Anthony, Cindy, Ross

“We have significant technological tools at the hands of teachers and students, but we struggle with the knowledge and talent to utilize these in teaching and learning.”

“I want to move learning from predominantly teacher directed to more student directed with student voice and choice being incorporated into the classroom.”
