"Every parent needs a voice in the learning programs implemented in their child’s school. So often, I find that schools have made the decisions for us, and neither parents nor students have much say over those critical decisions.
In this first book for parents and students, there are specific scripts for kids to be able to speak openly with their teachers (and parents) too) about how to combine their strengths in various subjects and present powerful projects (still meeting school standards) to demonstrate they have mastered those subjects.
It is exciting to me as a parent to know that personalized learning customizes learning to every child’s preferred way of learning as well as to their passions, and shows them how to connect what they learn to the workplace.
Thank you to Pat Wyman and all the authors in Smarter Squared for giving parents a voice to help our kids personalize and self-direct their learning and create the future they want."
-- Stan DiOrio, Attorney and Legislative Policy Analyst
"Personalized Learning has genuinely transformed our district and dramatically accelerates the progress and grades of our students. In fact, we received a $10 million grant from XQ to continue creating the high school of the future. All future-oriented educators should be immersing themselves in personalized learning and we are grateful that Smarter ² includes the information for students to empower themselves and advocate for the use of Personalized Learning to maximize their potential for a lifetime."
-- Devin Vodicka, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools, Vista Unified School District, Vista, CA
"When I wanted to share personalized learning with my students, I looked and looked for a book I could recommend to my students and their parents. Smarter ² is that book and I love how quickly my students understand the power of personalized learning to shape their destiny! A precious resource for every student, parent and teacher."
-- Michelle Markakis, Teacher
"The personalized learning strategies in Smarter ² truly changed my life! For the first time, I was able to use the information inside this book to customize learning to me personally, and no longer had to learn the same thing, in the same way and at the same time as everyone else.
I am now able to pursue my passion for writing, music and making movies in a very innovative way, and use the technology I love, to allow me to finish my projects in school much faster and with more free time to write my book. Thank you!"
-- Avery D. Student, Minnesota
"As the pressures of our world, economy, and communities create a sense of urgency for us to rethink teaching and learning, Personalized Learning is surfacing as the most effective and aspirational way to ignite the passion of learning for everyone.
Smarter Squared is an outstanding resource for students, parents, and educators to move beyond the aspirational state to truly transforming learning so everyone can succeed.
Thank you to Pat and all the co-writers for your contribution to this work. Call to action: Read this book and then get one for the person(s) you thought of as you were reading it."
-- Laura Henderson, CEO Epiphany Learning LLC.
