It takes a village. With the growing importance of buy-in from various stakeholders in personalized learning, this adage has taken on a new meaning, opening up a number of opportunities for schools, districts, and educational technology providers to better inform all stakeholders about the value and impact of personalized learning on educators, students and parents. But how can you convey the value of personalized learning to audiences who don’t always speak the same language? And what are the best ways to communicate this value to ensure your message is reaching the right people in an impactful way?

This session is designed for anyone involved in communicating the value of personalized learning to increase awareness, engagement, and adoption of this learning model. Attendees will hear from administrators, teachers, and ed tech providers and learn:

-The “anatomy” of a great story and how to tailor stories based on audience to make the most impactful
-How administrators and teachers are harnessing real-world stories to inspire and empower other educators with best practices around personalized learning
-Practical ways to involve parents in understanding the value of personalized learning and empowering them to become evangelists throughout the community
