Since our founding, The Learning Accelerator
‘s belief has been that each child in America must have an effective, equitable, and engaging education that is personalized to need and choice, informed by data, and mastery-based. Blended learning is a key mechanism for making this vision possible and the Blended and Personalized Learning Practices at Work
project we released today fills a pressing need educators have for specific, authentic examples of how to put great ideas into practice in their classrooms.
This new collection of resources is designed specifically for educators who are implementing blended and personalized learning. The platform offers a free, open, and shareable bank of practical teaching and learning strategies that help to bring personalized learning from theory to practice. We welcome you to use and share these resources in whatever ways will help your own work in the field.
DEEP DIVE, WIDE NET
Our Blended and Personalized Learning Practices at Work project is the culmination of more than a year’s work exploring over 100 schools and systems. We worked deeply with six schools serving highly diverse student bodies and shared their work through videos, audio recordings, and screencasts, as well as narrative descriptions and tangible artifacts. The six schools profiled are located in California, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, and Rhode Island.
FREE AND OPEN
As with all of our work, we have released this platform under a Creative Commons license and we hope that partners like you will use, share, and even repurpose the materials to further your own missions to improve education. We also welcome you to share with us your insights and resources that would improve this site – making it as robust a clearinghouse for blended and personalized learning educators as possible.
We are deeply thankful to the many organizations and individuals who engaged with us on this project (including many of you). We will continue to expand and improve upon theBlended and Personalized Learning Practices at Work platform over time.
