About this event:

Created by Jill Somrock

Core tenets of student-centered learning – competency-based, anytime-anywhere, personalized, and student ownership – can be used as the basis for creating customized learning plans that match the interests, talents, and passions of students. During this session, attendees will learn how a new model at New Hampshire’s Virtual Learning Academy Charter School (VLACS) provides students with an almost limitless number of opportunities, including early college courses, experiential learning, learning through projects, and with a team of peers.

Learn more about VLACS’ ground-breaking work in this recent interview with CEO Steve Kossakoski by Julia Freeland Fisher at the Clayton Christensen Institute here.

Presenters: Scott Prescott (Director of Instruction) and Steve Kossakoski (CEO), Virtual Learning Academy Charter School, NH
