States are much more likely to be successful in their support of innovation and personalized learning if they are intentional about building the capacity of school leaders and educators.
Personalized, competency-based learning is a fundamental transformation of education from the one-size-fits-all factory-based model, to an approach customized to the needs and interests of each individual student.
In these learning environments, students tailor their education based on their own learning goals, interests and passions. Students work with their teachers to decide on learning objectives based on personalized learning plans, engage in meaningful learning to accomplish rigorous goals and take ownership of their education.
