Getting some training on making our distance learning better for students, and I can not recommend the work of TLA enough. Very well thought-out work to help students!

During one of our many deep dives into the black hole of internet searches, looking for strategies and tips you can use to #ReThinkHighSchool, we came across a holy grail of resources from The Learning Accelerator. They analyzed hundreds of schools and systems nationwide to identify the best instructional and operational practices for implementing blended and personalized learning. Here’s the best part: All of these resources are easy-to-find with an awesome category system you can filter by topic, grade, and audience.

We know that the theory of personalized learning is powerful but the actual nuts and bolts of implementations is extremely difficult. A lot of the work that TLA does from the practices website to their data work make personalized learning concrete with voices from actual teachers and administrators who are practitioners.
