San Carlos, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2014
Education Elements, an organization which unlocks the potential of any teacher to personalize learning for every student, today announced a partnership with Riverside Unified School District in California. Education Elements will work with the district to design personalized learning in five schools as part of the district’s Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation NextGen Systems grant.
“We are looking forward to working closely with Riverside Unified School District and building on the great work they have already completed,” said Anthony Kim, CEO and Founder of Education Elements. “It is exciting to work with such a forward-looking district.”
Throughout the fall, Education Elements will help Riverside to refine the vision, goals, expectations and support structure for personalized learning in the district and help the five schools pilot their personalized learning academic program. Education Elements’ team of Design and Implementation consultants has done similar work with over 100 schools across the country.
Riverside Unified School District was one of six school districts across the country to win a Phase II grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Each of the five schools will re-design their instructional models to move away from a one-size-fits all approach to education and personalize learning in order to better meet the needs of students.
“We are proud to be working with partner organizations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Education Elements as we continue to customize our students’ educational experience,” noted RUSD District Superintendent, Dr. David Hansen. “As the only California school district chosen to participate we are excited to pioneer a new way of learning for our students, in collaboration with their teachers, parents, and community members. We believe this effort will help students connect with learning so that they can achieve their individual goals.”
