The benefits of personalized learning, whether in a blended or fully online setting, are being realized by more educators across the country every day.  Using a wealth of resources to provide students customized content, in an engaging format, that they can progress through at their own pace, has proven to increase test scores and keep students on track for graduation.  

But, what do educators— those who are on the front lines—have to say about personalized learning?

Recently, at the Ohio Blended Learning Forum, we had the opportunity to sit down with attending educators and administrators to discuss their thoughts on the benefits of blended and personalized learning.

Rebecca Furlong- Director of Technology of Wooster Schools- says that blended learning addresses her students’ individual styles in the “way that they can learn best.”  Jeff Rings- Virtual Learning Coordinator for Johnstown Monroe Schools- talks about how course customization using the PEAK Library can be especially beneficial to at-risk students.  Jeff Nelson, Superintendent of the Virtual Community School (VCS) of Ohio, speaks to the rigor of online curriculum and the ease of use for students.

These three educators clearly believe in the value of personalized learning. Check out our short video to see what educators are saying about personalized learning.
