Welcome to the eighth 100Kin10 Annual Partner Summit, an annual convening of 250+ leaders committed to solving the challenges underlying the STEM teacher shortage. 

Over the course of the day, our hope is that you’ll spark meaningful connections with peers, exchange perspectives and stories, glean insights, and get energized about new possibilities for your work and for the field.

How might we develop and implement more personalized learning experiences to reach all students?

How our organization is tackling this challenge:
"Our Navigated Learning program uses big-data to locate the learner's knowledge and skills in real-time, and supports teachers to personalize their interventions in the class and the course."

Navigated Learning is a “GPS for Learning.” It works on the principle that to navigate a learner, we have to first locate their knowledge and skills with precision. We then present them with a learning route based on their location, and continuously reroute them based on their performance until they reach their learning goals.  Navigated Learning brings Big Data, Open Educational Resources, classroom practices, and science of learning to work in tandem to bring the simplicity and assured success of “Google Maps” to learning. With Navigated Learning, teachers support students—each of whom have their own learning pathways—with a full spectrum of learning activities that span offline and digital activities to help develop non-cognitive and curriculum skills.

How our organization is tackling this challenge:
"Supporting inclusive STEM learning through free online interactive science and math simulations with flexible and intuitive accessibility features like auditory description, sound, and alternative input."

Students with special needs or learning disabilities can struggle to be successful in integrated STEM classrooms that are not equipped with resources to best support them. Adaptable and flexible technology has shown great potential in creating more inclusive STEM learning environments in schools. PhET Interactive Simulations (phet.colorado.edu) provides 150+ free, interactive math and science simulations to engage learners, and now several simulations are accessible to students with visual impairments or other challenges who could benefit from alternative input, auditory descriptions, and sound. Accessible simulations allow students with diverse needs to learn together, while the simulation adapts to meet their individual learning needs.
