In a new Education Week article, “Educator Networks: Building a Community to Advance Learning” Sarah Luchs, Program Officer for Next Generation Learning Challenges, discusses FSG’s recent report on the role of networks in personalized learning and shares takeaways for practitioners working on personalized learning and those in the broader field of K-12 education.
“FSG's report maps the interconnections within and between network roles to advance the current state of personalized learning—a still emerging and innovative approach for embracing every student's individual learning profile. Like so many of us working in spaces not yet well established and characteristically messy, I appreciate the descriptive framework and diversity of examples included. FSG illustrates how networks can advance models, shift practice, support evidence-building, and engender democratic values. Their intent is to help us see ways of strengthening our networks and identify beneficial next steps.”
