Personalized Learning at KIPP LA

At KIPP LA, we define personalized learning as the thoughtful integration of technology into instruction, allowing teachers to deliver more personalized attention to each student. Students can utilize a variety of online tools, like Google Applications for Education, to explore new topics and expand their horizons, further developing their love of learning. For an in-depth look at one of our schools that utilizes a rotational personalized learning model, check out the video and additional resources on KIPP Empower Academy, the first school in the national KIPP network to implement a school-wide personalized learning model.
