Mass Customized Learning Consortium
Transforming Learning…What is the Mass Customized Learning Consortium (MCL)?Why was it created?Who can enroll?All partners in the educational sector can enroll in the MCL Consortium. We currently have public school systems, charter schools, businesses, and a university. As the Pennsylvania consortium grows from our current 24 learning organizations, there is usually one basic question that leaders have as they contemplate joining the consortium.Answer: Mass Customized Learning is much more than “personalization,” “differentiation” or “performance based.” MCL has two premises:
2. Become radically learner centered
2. The Consortium will have book studies available that will help inculcate MCL principles.
3. Consortium members will experience unique opportunities as they arise. For example, consortium members were invited to Reston, VA to participate in an Executive Briefing with Apple Education. The theme of this briefing was, “Leveraging Technology in Mass Customized Learning Environments.”
4. Ultimately, the Consortium makes learning better for all students!Cost and requirements
Membership consists of education leaders who will work to transform learning in their organizations to assure students (learners) receive learning at their appropriate level every day. The investment to join the Consortium is $1,000 per year. Members receive four complimentary registrations to each summit and a discount on registrations beyond four registrations.How to enroll?
