The use of personalized learning approaches in K-12 schools is expanding, fueled by new teaching approaches and technological advances. But making personalized learning work in the classroom is easier said than done. That reality is in clear view based on the results of a nationally representative survey of teachers on personalized learning, conducted by the Education Week Research Center. It examined teachers’ perspectives on the power of new learning technologies to personalized learning, what they think of students setting their own learning goals, the role of adaptive curricula and assessments to empower students to learn at their own pace and to provide remediation or enrichment experiences for students, and more. This online summit will help keep Education Week readers ahead of the curve in an edgy, critical, and useful way by staying on top of how technological advances are changing personalized learning, what school/classroom practices (non-tech as well as tech-oriented ones) are showing the greatest impact on student learning, and what balance needs to be achieved between too much use of technology and not enough.
