Personalized learning” is among the most discussed initiatives in education today. Most schools nationwide say they’ve implemented personalized learning, to some degree. Hill and her colleagues have designed a framework, which they call the equityXdesign framework, to help schools identify the needs of the most excluded students in a school and to design learning experiences based on what they need to become successful. It makes personalized learning a strategy for equity. And a number of schools in Washington, D.C., have adopted this approach as a way to close achievement gaps for historically disadvantaged populations.
