An innovative five-step framework to help school leaders and teacher teams design and implement blended and personalized learning initiatives based on local needs and interests


Shawn Rubin

Cathy Sanford


Pathways to Personalization offers a framework for thoughtful implementation of personalized learning. The volume helps educators to engage in deep examination of the purpose of the education system and empowers local change agents to ensure that all children build the knowledge, competence, and skills they need.”

Susan Patrick, president, iNACOL and cofounder, CompetencyWorks

"A must-read for skeptics and champions of personalized learning alike. This book moves past mere rhetoric about personalization to explore real classrooms trying to reinvent themselves. Weaving together history, philosophy, personal experience, and stories about the hard work of educators on the frontlines, Rubin and Sanford offer a compelling framework for rethinking school as we know it."

Julia Freeland Fisher, director of education research, Clayton Christensen Institute
