On July 10, the Department of Education hosted a Teacher Summer Seminar titled, "What Teachers Need to Know about Personalized Learning." The seminar provided perspectives on the meaning, purpose, and future of personalized learning from Department of Education staff; teachers from Maryland and Virginia also shared how they use real-time data to individualize instruction and engage students with varied abilities.

I'm pleased to invite you to a series of summer seminars hosted by the Department of Education called "Summer Seminars at Six: An Introduction to Education Policy."
The seminars are designed to share information about education policy that will help teachers to be engaged and participate in policy discussions at the federal, state and district level. Led by teachers working at the Department, along with other staff, there will be opportunities for questions and discussion both in person and online.
