MAPLE Learning Tours

Learning Tour of Revere High School
April 11, 2017

Revere High School’s journey to become a blended learning environment began in 2012 and has emerged and matured over the previous five years into a student-centered and personalized learning experience that better prepares all students for college and career. Supported by in-district professional learning, Revere HS faculty have transformed their practices by implementing a variety of digital tools, moving towards competency-based mastery, and shifting resources to provide students with more external learning opportunities.

The goals of this learning tour were to:

  • Experience learning and teaching at Revere High School, with a focus on a particular component of personalized learning – You choose which to dive into deeply: Competency-based learning, Anytime/ Anywhere learning, and Student-owned learning.
  • Participate actively in debriefing sessions with students, teachers, and administrators.
  • Work with colleagues to plan how to adapt these practices to your own context and setting.

Learning Tours of Natick Public Schools
December 14, 2016

Welcome to MAPLE: the Massachusetts Personalized Learning Edtech Consortium!

MAPLE brings educators together from across the state to see, explore, discuss, adopt and adapt personalized learning happening within the Commonwealth. One strategy we believe will be worthwhile is sharing our brightest spots of work through Learning Tours in our various schools and districts.

Learning Tours in Catalyst Districts are a key component of MAPLE’s work and the MAPLE Launch Event, hosted by Natick Public Schools on December 14, 2016 provided an exciting opportunity to get started. After a round of welcomes, a presentation of MAPLE’s work, and inspiring words from esteemed guests including Commissioner Chester and Michael Horn, participants divided into three groups and visited one of three schools.
