Pending Acceptance and Subject to Change

The ways that user behavior and emerging technologies shape each other is evolving. The entrepreneurs, experimenters, and creatives the world needs require learning that is personalized, real-time and accessible, regardless of time and place. Digital assessments, analytics, and robust learning management systems can achieve deeper insights into student adaptive needs. This session will define these systems, places, technologies, and personalized learning methods and explore how they overlay with each other to develop learners that are curious, empowered, and creative enough to thrive in this ever-changing world.

  1. Gain a thorough understanding of the definition of adaptive learning and how they can implement it to accelerate educational outcomes to meet and advance their district’s learning objectives.
  2. Learn how to leverage digital assessments, analytics, and robust learning management systems to achieve deeper learning insights into student needs, translating them into personalized learning that adapts in real-time.
  3. Take a deeper dive into redefining physical and virtual places of learning to facilitate adaptive learning methodologies for their district.
  4. Sample personalized learning modules and pilot projects utilizing these tools will be provided for attendees to implement them in their districts.

Track: The Experience of Place

The built and natural environments have profound impacts on our behaviors both for better and worse. How do we cultivate a sense of place for better? How might the built and natural environments be made to enhance teaching and learning? How might school buildings and grounds foster a sense of community by reflecting those they serve?
