Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • What is personalized learning?

    Posted by:

    Personalized learning is structuring schools, classrooms and instruction to better respond to the individual needs of students, instead of expecting them to fit the current mold or adapt to structures that may not be successful for them. We have teachers using elements of personalized learning in their classrooms right now.

     

    Personalized learning shifts from the one-size-fits-all factory model of education to better prepare students for the jobs and needs of their future. We will directly connect students to learning that meets the demands of their future work environment.

  • Are teachers going to be replaced by technology?

    Posted by:

    With personalized learning, the teacher is more important than ever! Technology is only one tool among many that teachers will have available to them to provide an individualized path and pace for students. Personalized learning promotes purposeful uses for technology that can transform instruction through the use of integrated digital content with the current curriculum.

  • What does integrated digital content mean?

    Posted by:

    Integrated digital content is the use of high quality digital tools to enhance learning for students, making it easier for teachers to provide an individualized path and pace for students. Students who haven't mastered concepts can take advantage of opportunities for extra practice or remediation. Digital content can also create extension opportunities for students who are ready to advance.

     

    Integrated digital content does not mean students will be isolated on a device for entire classes. Teachers will be able to actively find ways to integrate digital content into their curriculum, providing deeper learning through reinforcement and practice at the whatever level the student may be.
