This article shares the experiences of educators implementing personalized learning in Fulton County School District in Georgia. It explores the teacher’s five-year journey to find the approach to personalization that worked for them and their students. Key lessons learned include:

  • The importance of support for teachers throughout implementation
  • The need to have a common language around personalized learning
  • The dangers of assuming personalized learning will happen just through the introduction of new technology

This article should be a recommended read for educators, school and district leaders, and policy makers as it both highlights what good personalized learning can look like, and provides a cautionary tale of what can happen when schools place too much initial emphasis on technology to transform learning experiences.
