Oakland schools get $2.1 million in grants for tech-supported personalized learning


Oakland city schools are the recipients of a large, $2.1 million dollar grant for technology services and improvements to bring personalized learning solutions to the classroom. Starting this fall, each school within the district will receive about 350,000 dollars, which will allow each school to set up programs that will better assist their students in integrating technology into their everyday learning.

Given by a wide variety of donors, the donation is the focus of a nonprofit called the Next Generation Learning Program, which aims to better integrate technology in scholastic settings. The goal of the NGLC is to better individualize education to each child and to change the current formula of applying one solution to all schools, or a "one-size-fits-all" approach.
