Session: How Do School Systems Need to Change to Support Personalized Learning?

Presenter: Colleen McCann

Location: Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, room 302C

Description: This session explores how state and district systems shape the implementation and growth of personalized learning (PL) in schools. The session begins with an overview of findings from in-progress studies of PL implementation. Attendees will then work in small groups through two thought exercises: advising a hypothetical district interested in making changes to better support PL, and reflecting on how to address system-level issues in their own organizations to better support PL in schools.

Session: Blended Learning in Independent Schools-What We've Learned

Presenter: Tricia Maas

Location: Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, room 304C

Description: Join us to learn about research conducted at five independent Jewish day schools that spent the past three years implementing blended learning. Hear from the research team at the Center for Reinventing Public Education and from the funders of the project as they discuss the educational and financial outcomes of the project. The lessons learned will be applicable to other school settings and we will think together about what structures need to be in place to ensure better implementations.
