The way teachers teach and students learn is changing.

As more learning communities embrace personalized, competency-based learning – learning that centers each students’ strengths, needs and interests and provides differentiated supports and ways to demonstrate what they know and know how to do – educators and leaders are also working to ensure the changes they are making are systemic, sustainable and prioritize equitable, future-ready outcomes for all learners.

Finding Your Path: A Navigation Tool for Scaling Personalized, Competency-Based Learning is designed to help learning communities understand the conditions for sustainable systems change and to develop and advance a strategic plan for district-wide transformation to personalized, competency-based learning.

The tool explores:

  • System-level competencies aligned to learning targets that inform strategic action planning, professional development and community engagement goals
  • Guiding questions for educators, administrators and learners to help uncover progress and areas of growth for alignment toward equitable, systemic transformation
  • Examples of progress to look for across all areas of the system, from the classroom- to the community-level
