Following the successful passage of a $4.8-million bond issue in November, the Yuma Elementary School District 1 in Yuma, AZ, is planning a personalized learning program that the district hopes will enhance educational opportunities for all of its 9,000 K-8 students.
Designed to make adaptive learning materials available across print and digital platforms, the system will allow publishers to create personalized print chapters of textbooks, worksheets or assignments for schools that primarily rely on print textbooks. Students can learn using printed and/or digital adaptive content.
