Grant Program Aims to Support Personalized Learning
Education Elements wants to make personalized learning tools more accessible for principals. Through the Education Elements Grant for Personalized Learning Schools, selected school leaders will get a $3,000 grant to use for classroom redesign or programs related to improving student learning and outcomes. They will also gain 12 months of access of the company's Personalized Learning Toolkit and six hours of virtual support with a consultant.
The toolkit is designed to provide school leaders resources to implement personalized learning initiatives using a four-step methodology for change developed by Education Elements. School leaders gain access to workshops materials, an implementation plan and resource library with best practice examples from schools and districts across the country.
"Personalized learning should be accessible for all schools, but sometimes they lack the funding and expertise to move an initiative forward," said Education Elements CEO Anthony Kim. "By providing recipients with the tools and support they need, we can help drive positive change for schools, teachers, and students."
School leaders can apply for the grant through the Education Elements website. Applications will be accepted through Sept. 30.
