Vermont students are returning to the classroom this week. For incoming high school freshmen, that means learning to negotiate a whole new set of expectations. But the same could be said for their teachers and administrators.
Personalized learning and student-centric curriculum are what the East Hardwick-based organization UP for Learning is all about. Earlier this year, UP for Learning worked with students and educators to write, perform and produce a music video about personalized learning called Our Time.
"As school prepares to come back full-swing, now's a great time for students to be heard – literally and figuratively," says UP for Learning spokesperson Mike Schaefer.
The hope is a music video by Vermont students about personalized learning will inspire other Vermont students to play a more active role in designing their own education.
