Education Week offers you a big-picture look at how states, districts, schools, and education companies can better serve students through personalized learning.

In this virtual event, Education Week journalists and guests will staff online “discussion” rooms on a host of topics, including the research arguments against personalized learning, how self-paced learning can go awry, low-tech personalized learning strategies, principals’ views on personalized learning, how to train teachers for a radical change, and 5 big mistakes education companies are making in trying to serve schools’ personalized learning needs. Join them on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018, from 1 to 3 p.m. ET for a deep dive into PL education in your schools. This Online Summit provides you with a unique opportunity to interact directly with reporters and PL practitioners and experts and to watch a livestreamed series of interviews with the reporters after they’ve “broken it down” for you.
