A new era in teaching: The rise of personalized learning
Brian Stack

Schools are evolving into places where students can choose their learning pathway and build their own personalized and customized program that will fit their learning goals and needs. Gone are the days when the one-size-fits-all, stand-and-deliver approach to instruction was appropriate. Today's teachers are coming to recognize their new role as a learning facilitator or coach. From sage on the stage to guide on the side, America's teachers have entered into a new era in their profession.
