The Shifting Paradigm of Teaching: Personalized Learning According to Teachers

In today’s technology-driven world, teachers may no longer be the sole keepers of knowledge. But they are more important than ever in preparing students for an ever-changing workforce.

Based on interviews with teachers, instructional coaches and principals, the report explores what drives educators to build personalized learning environments in the classroom. It also provides excerpts from educator interviews and teacher reflections on how vision, culture and transparency have impacted personalized learning implementation.

Finally, the paper aligns teacher insight to 10 district conditions for scaling personalized learning, such as curriculum, instruction, technology policy and assessment systems. KnowledgeWorks originally published "The District Conditions for Scale: A Practical Guide for Scaling Personalized Learning©" in 2014.

KnowledgeWorks, in partnership with the National Commission on Teaching & America’s Future (NCTAF) release “The Shifting Paradigm of Teaching: Personalized Learning According to Teachers” to explore the voices and perspectives of educators implementing personalized learning in the classroom.
