Enabling Analytics for Improvement ‒ Lessons from Year 2 of Fresno’s Personalized Learning Initiative
How to do you keep the momentum rolling for initiatives? First, you need to understand your current success: what's working and where can we improve? Second, you need to communicate that success to parents, teachers, principals, and anyone one else with a stake in student progress. Fresno Unified's Personalized Learning Initiative, in partnership with #Microsoft, Digital Promise, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, integrated learning analytics to do just that. In this year 2 report, the results speak for themselves: The initiative is accomplishing its goals of closing achievement gaps and preparing students for "as yet imagined futures." Let's keep this momentum going to improve the lives of all students!

Estimates say that automation could replace up to 50% of existing jobs by 2030, as our current kindergartners reach graduation. The new jobs available will require stronger critical thinking, creativity, and social-emotional skills. Personalized education is key to developing these abilities. Technology can give students the opportunity to take control of their own learning journey and puts the teacher in a position to become a valuable coach in this process rather than a director. We at Bitnet Solutions Ltd are excited about the transformative power of technology in the classroom. Contact us to learn more.
