What is the role of Education Elements?
Education Elements works with districts across the country to build and support dynamic methods of teaching to meet the needs of every learner. We are a team of seasoned educators, designers, technologists, and change management experts. Our work with school districts across the country means we have a deep well of knowledge to draw from, with ample case studies from other school districts illustrating challenges and successes in the journey to personalized learning. We take the time to understand the unique challenges school leaders face and then customize training and support for each district.
While we can share what has worked elsewhere, we also seek to understand the culture and context of each district and school. We began our work with Fairbanks by spending time visiting and listening to teachers, administrators, and staff members in order to understand the unique challenges of your district. We have since begun working with teams of teachers and principals from every elementary schools to help them gain a foundational knowledge of personalized learning and to design classroom models that will best meet the needs of students.
At the same time, we have been working with a cross-functional district team, called the Personalized Learning Council, to ensure alignment exists at both the district and school levels. We have found this work with districts to be essential; districts need to understand personalized learning in order to adequately support the changing needs of schools. We are also working with the PL Council to create a vision of success for what they seek to accomplish through personalized learning, and we will continue to work with the district to make that vision a reality.
