On Dec 14, we hosted learning tours for the launch of the Massachusetts Personalized Learning Edtech (MAPLE) Consortium. This consortium is a public/private partnership between the LearnLaunch Institute and MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The event consisted of learning tours to classrooms in three Natick schools (Brown, Wilson and NHS), which allowed visitors to see the Natick model in personalized education at each level.
LearnLaunch took their observations and wrote blog posts about each school visit, highlighting key ingredients to educational engagement in the classroom.
Additionally, Josef Blumenfeld wrote a blog post about this event for the Huffington Post. In his article, he recognizes Natick Public Schools as a district leader and Natick High School as "a model of innovation and reinvention."
