Visit, Learn, Reflect

We appreciate your interest in learning more about personalized learning and visiting schools where you can see first-hand this powerful learning strategy in action!

Expert Office Hours*
Field Experience participants will have the opportunity to connect with practitioners from the hosting sites during after school sessions. This is a great opportunity for participants to ask questions and dig more deeply into what they saw during the visits earlier in the day.

Design Session**
These sessions provide teams with a process and framework for designing their own plan to implement personalized learning in their district. Teams will have access to several tools and strategies developed by the Institute to help teams:

  • create a vision and goals based on how they want to transform the educational experience of their learners
  • decide on a specific goal and plan for implementation

We request that an administrator (principal) accompany any groups of teachers that may be visiting so that the experience is the most beneficial for all visitors. We have found that bringing an administrator on the front-end facilitates action after you have visited.
