DELIVERING THE STRATEGY TO PERSONALIZE LEARNING AT SCALE

The traditional classroom of the 20th century continues to exist in the U.S. This is due not to a lack of technological or pedagogic innovation, but to gaps in organizational and industry alignment that prevents innovation from impacting today’s school buildings. Modern Teacher aims to enhance the unification of the education system, the student experience and, most importantly, improve student outcomes.
