Based on the popularity and desire to continue educator panel discussions that debuted at the A4LE Conference, Cambridge this past March, this discussion will examine how to design and implement innovative instructional models that leverage classroom design, teacher talent, and technology to enable personalized learning for every student every day. We will review the most typical spaces where learning takes place, and how they can be adapted to new teaching and learning needs.

New approaches and technology draw from tens of thousands of high-quality lessons to create dynamic curricula tailored to students' unique needs. We will discuss how to integrate teacher-led, collaborative, and independent instruction in ways that enable students to not just learn skills but apply them in real-world contexts. We will discuss how innovative instructional models can create unique and personalized schedules for students every day based upon each student's individual strengths and needs and explain how this type of next generation learning is a crucial next step in education reform. Together with these changes, also the physical spaces need to adapt or lead the change. Some examples will be reviewed.

Please join us following the panel discussion for drinks and appetizers at a nearby establishment to be named!
