In 1984, in what is known as Bloom's 2 sigma problem, Benjamin Bloom reported in the "Educational Researcher" journal his finding that the average student tutored one-to-one using mastery learning techniques performed two standard deviations better than students who learn using conventional instructional methods.

The education industry has known for over 20 years that a personalized learning approach leads to increased student learning, yet it remains largely untapped. The possibility of creating a more personalized learning environment in any school model is attainable if educators begin looking at how to customize methods of connection, motivation, and teaching. The impacts of a personalized approach extend to teachers as well, as they should be coached and guided individually to increase student learning. In 1999, Fusion Education Group started a one-to-one school model, emphasizing the importance of mastery learning and student-teacher relationships. The practices Fusion employs with students and staff can be valuable to all school models seeking to improve student learning.

During this webinar, Educators will learn:

  • to identify the impact of student-teacher relationships on student learning and how to create genuine connections.
  • to identify how to access students’ intrinsic motivation to increase classroom participation.
  • recognize the best methods for personalizing instruction to achieve mastery.
  • identify how a personalized coaching approach with teachers impacts student learning.
