System-Wide Definition of Blended or Personalized Learning

“The vision has to be your North Star.” (Rebecca Midles)


When asked about the most critical piece of their scale process for implementing blended or personalized learning at a system level, district/CMO leaders have talked consistently about the importance of having a clear, centralized vision for change that includes the desired outcomes the district is seeking. For a number of districts, even those with largely decentralized strategies, this means creating a coherent, district-wide definition of blended learning or personalization to ground and align implementation efforts.

Here are a number of examples of district-level definitions of blended or personalized learning as well as other resources that explore the importance of creating a clear vision for change as the starting point for any innovation process.
