This report, based on interviews with teachers, instructional coaches and principals from KnowledgeWorks and the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future (NCTAF) discusses how the shift to personalized learning has impacted teachers. It begins with an exploration of what drives educators to build personalized learning environments in the classroom. The report then details reflections from three teachers on the ways in which school vision, culture, and transparency have impacted implementation of personalized learning. The report also aligns teacher insights with the 10 district conditions for scaling personalized learning outlined in the KnowledgeWorks guide The District Conditions for Scale: A Practical Guide for Scaling Personalized Learning, to show how conditions such as curriculum, instruction, and assessment systems are implemented in the classroom.
Educators, administrators, policy-makers, researchers, and other leaders in the education field will appreciate hearing teacher voices which come through this report in numerous classroom examples and excerpts from teacher interviews.
