Advancing Change Through Partnership

At KnowledgeWorks, we believe that all children deserve the opportunity to experience meaningful learning. We also believe in the power of partnership. To scale personalized learning throughout the nation, we need major systems change—and we can’t do it alone. In order to provide quality education for all students and promote innovative teaching in the classroom, we must work collaboratively with other organizations that offer diversity in thought and approach.

We’re excited that so many policymakers, system leaders and education influencers are joining in partnership with us to support the movement for personalized learning. As more organizations join in the movement, the implementation of personalized learning in the classroom will continue to grow. Together, we can make an impact to improve education for students throughout the country.

We are proud to partner with—and work alongside—the following organizations to advance the effort to ensure high quality, personalized education experiences for all children.

I’ve done some pretty ambitious collaborations before, but to work this closely with eight other people, online, to go from a blank page to a continuum of defensible competencies? Thanks to the Utah State Board of Education and KnowledgeWorks for laying the groundwork and providing the structure and supports to help us achieve this successful outcome.
