After eight years of working alongside school leaders, and a year of testing, (opens in new tab)Education Elements (opens in new tab) is announcing its Personalized Learning Toolkit (opens in new tab). The toolkit helps school leaders take a do-it-yourself approach to planning, designing, and launching a school- or district-level student-centered, personalized learning initiative.
During its work with more than 750 schools and 140 districts, Education Elements designed a (opens in new tab)four-step methodology (opens in new tab) for change (opens in new tab) – Plan & Align, Foundations, Design/Launch, and Support, Reflect, and Iterate – and ongoing face-to-face consultative support. For schools purchasing the toolkit, there is an initial consultation and setup with an Education Elements personalized learning consultant, then it provides the same four-step methodology and provides the leader with everything needed to guide professional learning of their staff and inspire change.
The toolkit includes the following:
- Customizable meeting and workshop agendas, slides, resources, and an implementation plan to guide the personalized learning initiative
- Materials for teacher and leadership team workshops to help staff understand what personalized learning is and how and why it helps students
- A School Reflection Journal to understand readiness for this instructional shift, guide reflection, and monitor progress
- A Resource Library with best practice examples from schools and districts around the country
