About This Project

Since our founding, The Learning Accelerator’s belief has been that blended learning is an innovation with the potential to transform the education of millions of students in American K-12 schools. By using technology to help teachers and students more deeply understand and respond to individual strengths, interests, and needs, we think schools can better reach their goal: effective, equitable, and engaging learning for every student.

The Learning Accelerator’s Blended and Personalized Learning at Work website is the culmination of several years’ work exploring hundreds of schools and systems to identify places implementing high-quality blended and personalized learning. Through seeking to understand how teachers, students, and school leaders were working together and gathering data on instructional, operational, and measurement best practices, we have learned a lot.

The Blended and Personalized at Work site freely and openly codifies what we have seen - both larger observations and patterns as well as specific practices and tools. Our goal is to help educators and leaders discover, test, and share real-world strategies to enact and scale blended learning in their schools today.
