Personalized learning is gaining momentum across the nation, which means the role of teachers and skillsets they need is evolving. To address this need, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and Jobs for the Future (JFF) in collaboration with the Center for Innovation in Education (CIE), the Institute for Personalized Learning, and the Nellie Mae Education Foundation (NMEF) came together to develop a resource that outlines the unique competencies educators need in order to create and thrive in effective personalized learning environments, the Educator Competencies for Personalized, Learner-Centered Teaching.
