Expanding its personalized school model to include customization around non-academic aspects of learning
New Classrooms is a non-profit organisation tailoring education to individual students’ strengths and needs through a blend of teacher-led, small-group, peer-to-peer, and virtual instruction. Through its grant, it is seeking to validate the assumption that learners who understand their learning strengths and weaknesses through the lens of both academic and non-academic measures will be more successful.
“Using algorithms, Teach to One: Math helps me and my colleagues personalize the learning experience for our 300 students, grouping them according to readiness every day, regardless of grade level. The result was that my students now had a constantly changing context to learn from and an increase in student ownership.”
– Aaron Kaswell, teacher
