Facebook-supported personalized learning platform goes national, adding 100-plus schools

Now Summit is taking its Personalized Learning Platform to over 100 additional schools across 27 states and the District of Columbia. “When we embarked on this journey back in September, teachers told us they were interested in personalized learning, but didn’t have the resources to bring it to their classrooms,” Diane Tavenner, Summit’s CEO, said in a Facebook post. Early results have been promising, she said: “Students reported that personalized learning empowered them, and made them realize they could drive their own learning and success.”

The expanding program is further evidence of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s interest in personalized learning. In announcing the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, his $45 philanthropic project, he highlighted plans to invest in technology “that understands how you learn best and where you need to focus.”
