Let the Personalized Learning Academy help you navigate the emerging world of Personalizing Learning
Personalizing learning is emerging from Florida to Alaska as the most exciting movement in education in decades. Its promise is to engage more students, offer more relevance to their education, and seed more learning success. How is this being achieved, where is it emerging, and how educators and administrators are adapting PL to their classrooms and districts are some of the focus areas in a Personalized Learning certificate course being offered by the PLA in 2019. For course information, register (for free) with the PLA.
“At its heart, Personalized Learning is to help ‘nurture and launch the butterflies’ we know as the children and youth we serve, and that live in ourselves, too!”
