    Since the inception of public education, the outcomes needed of our graduates have changed greatly.  This session will provide an introduction to the concept of personalized learning as a possible solution to meet those needs.  Shifts in the world around us have given us immediate access to data and content enabling personalized learning as a structure to support best practices seamlessly.  Meeting the needs of each student while providing them choice in their learning seems great in theory but daunting as a task.
