District Superintendents from Around the Country Are Meeting in Salt Lake City to Explore the Transition from Traditional Learning to Personalized Learning, a Shift That Promises to Reshape K-12 Education in the US
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (PRWEB) May 08, 2016
School Improvement Network, one of Utah’s longest standing education technology companies, today announced that it is hosting over 50 public school district superintendents from 30 states at its corporate headquarters in Salt Lake City from May 9 to 11. The superintendents will be meeting as part of the Superintendents Personalized Learning Cohort, an event that School Improvement Network is sponsoring with AASA, the School Superintendents Association.
One of the highlights of the event will be a tour of Weber Innovation High School in Ogden, a national leader in personalized and project based learning. This tour will show how Weber Innovations High School is making the transition to personalized learning and will provide a first-hand look at how educational needs are more fully met when learning is personalized.
“Personalized learning is a dramatically different approach to education that gives every student agency over his or her time, pace, path, and place of learning with the hands on support of their teacher,” said Anne Brown, Vice President of Personalized Learning at School Improvement Network. “Technology is what makes this possible, enabling students to have this blended mix of personalized instruction, along with teacher instruction, that allows them to pursue their academic goals with great intensity and deeper learning.”
Weber Innovation High School reports average ACT test scores of 19.2, higher than both district and state benchmarks. In addition, students are, on average, at least one to two credits ahead of pace, and have already earned nearly 200 concurrent college credits.
The media is invited to join in on the tour and visit with students and staff members to find out what makes this Utah school different, and how its successful move to personalized learning is gaining national attention.
