A National Landscape Scan of Personalized Learning in K-12 Education
iNACOL has published a new report about personalized learning across the nation. This report, based on surveys of both teachers and students, reveals that teachers are building student-centered environments and putting personalized learning practices in place. However, the responses also reveal the need for more support for teachers to connect with their students. While there has been progress made, the transition to personalized learning is not complete, and still requires additional support.
