Personalized Learning: A Guide for Engaging Students with Technology

With personalized learning, teachers and students are more empowered to take charge of the education experience. This approach transforms learning environments by recognizing that pupils come from different backgrounds, interests, and ability levels.

Personalized Learning: A Guide for Engaging Students with Technology is designed to help today’s educators and administrators understand the concepts behind personalized learning, and to share with them the strategies, policies, devices, services, techniques and resources available to transform teaching into something more relevant, more powerful, and more rewarding.

This book provides the information needed to implement personalized learning with technology and concludes with a step-by-step guide to planning, funding, and implementing a school-wide personalized learning program.
