Summit Learning at NJIT
February 23rd, 2017 - Digital Learning Day
"When students harness the power within themselves,
there’s no limit to what they can achieve."
Summit Personalized Learning: Brought to You by Summit Public Schools and Facebook
In this event, held at NJIT's Campus Center, attendees learned about how their school can bring Summit's proven personalized learning model and the Summit Learning Platform to your classrooms for free. This event was designed to inform school and district leaders of the free opportunities to implement Summit Learning next school year (2017-2018).
Summit Public Schools and Facebook are committed to helping schools and teachers bring personalized learning to more classrooms. Personalized learning helps students reach their full potential and empowers teachers to teach the way they have always wanted to. In schools that have embraced personalized learning, teachers have the tools and support to customize instruction to meet students’ individual needs and interests.
This flexibility is supported by an online tool, the Summit Learning Platform, that allows teachers and students to create and carry out individual learning plans, track progress, and collaborate. Developed by teachers from Summit Public Schools with engineering assistance from Facebook, the Summit Learning Platform helps students connect their long term goals to their daily actions. Students move at their own pace to learn skills, apply those skills to real world projects, and reflect on their learning.
In the 2015-16 school year, Summit launched the Summit Learning Program, a free program that provides support and resources to public schools to bring personalized learning—and the Summit Learning Platform—into their classrooms. Thanks to overwhelming interest, Summit Learning has expanded to include more than 100 schools in the 2016-17 school year. The application for the 2017-2018 cohort is open now.
