Personalized Learning

There are a lot of things you can do on your own; personalized learning doesn't have to be one of them.

Personalized learning improves student engagement and achievement, develops students to be lifelong learners, and better prepares them for college and careers.

Why Personalized Learning?


The world is changing and our schools need to keep up. Students need to become problem solvers and collaborators. They need to take ownership of their learning and become lifelong learners. To do this, students need learning in classrooms to be accessible, relevant, and reflective of how they learn outside of school. We think classroom environments need to change in order to meet the needs of students today and prepare them for tomorrow. Personalized learning helps us do that.

What is Personalized Learning?


We take an expansive view of personalized learning. We believe that personalized learning means that students get the instruction they need, when they need it. We believe there are many good and valid approaches to personalize learning for students. They include: blended learning (which we think is usually a good starting place), competency-based learning, culturally-responsive teaching, project-based learning, and a focus on incorporating student choice and agency into instructional decisions. Through our design thinking process, we believe we can support any district and school to personalize learning for students, regardless of their approach. However, we believe personalized learning is most successful at scale when technology is used effectively, classrooms are redesigned, and districts have a clear plan for supporting schools through the transition.

Our team of former educators and administrators works side-by-side with districts to personalize learning.


While every project is different, because every district is different, there are six main ways we support districts:

  • Develop and articulate a district vision and strategy for personalized learning
  • Assess school readiness
  • Design new instructional models that personalize learning
  • Select digital content
  • Support schools with high quality professional development
  • Align all stakeholders using Touchpoint, a tool for school and district leaders, designed to make managing the work easier
