Personalized Learning Has Arrived: New Podcast Episode

Jean Sharp, the Chief Academic Officer for Apex Learning, was a recent guest on Remote Possibilities, a new MarketScale edtech podcast hosted by Kevin Hogan.

Personalized learning comes in many different forms but the foundation for success is the same: selecting a high-quality, rigorous curriculum that accelerates and deepens student understanding. But not all digital curriculum is the same and not all will enable teachers to design a variety of rich learning experiences that meet the individual needs of every student.
