Whether you make a New Year’s resolution this year or not, your actions in the coming year have the potential to change the shape of the future of learning. Educators, administrators, and students are increasingly driven to personalize learning, and the desire to make meaningful connections between what we’re teaching and learning to what matters most to us is only going to grow in 2017. http://knowledgeworks.org/worldoflearning/2017/01/17993/
The Shaping the Future of Learning: K-12 School-Based Education Strategy Workbook can help you make your 2017 resolutions to change the future of learning.
