Envisioning an Equitable Future Through Personalized Learning
May 23, 2017, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
This event, held in partnership with The Boston Foundation, will bring educators together to learn more about personalized learning that is happening in Massachusetts now, and think about how we can shape the future of education across the state. Breakout sessions will highlight what personalized learning looks like in the classroom, with schools presenting on strategies including project-based learning, competencies, and student advisories. A lunch panel will feature local leaders and policymakers discussing what do we need to do to bring personalized learning to all students in MA. The keynote speaker, Ron Berger of EL Education, will be presenting on authentic learning.
This is a free event. A light breakfast and full lunch will be served.
