As personalized learning models grow in popularity around the country, there are increasingly more questions about what it looks like for students and educators.

During KnowledgeWorks’ upcoming webinar, attendees will have the chance to hear from a teacher, principal and district leader about what personalized learning looks like in the classroom – and what they think about it.

“KnowledgeWorks has spent the past few years interviewing educators, principals and district leaders about personalized learning in practice,” KnowledgeWorks Senior Manager of Research and Advocacy Sarah Jenkins said. “The response has been overwhelmingly positive, but it’s become clear that personalized learning can’t happen in a bubble. It needs wraparound support from educators, school leaders and policymakers.”

The webinar will also explore how personalized learning can be supported from all levels of the system: from the classroom, school and district to state and federal policy.

What? “The Shifting Paradigm of Teaching: How Lessons from the Classroom Inform System Design”

When? Oct. 11, 11 a.m. EST
