One-to-one, personalized learning at Atlanta Prep is NOT a student paired with technology and adaptive software, but a student paired with a qualified teacher who is dedicated to that student and his/her individual learning needs and styles. Learner characteristics and mastery of learning are principles that are involved in teacher preparation of one-to-one, personalized learning. Incorporating these theories into the learning model provides teachers the ability to meet the diverse needs of all learners. The student who needs more time and instruction to understand a concept, gets more time and instruction. The student who is ready to advance to the next concept, moves on to the next concept. All students are provided with just the right amount of time and instruction to meet their individual learning needs.
