If you've been tracking new models of schooling, then you are sure to have run across the idea of micro-schools, small schools often with fewer than 100 students. Poised to iterate quickly on emerging ideas such as personalized and blended learning, competency-based progression and flexible designs, these small learning environments are proving to be an important K-12 innovation strategy.

Carolyn Wilson shared how AltSchool's educators, designers, and engineers are building an eco-system for personalizing learning within micro-schools. AltSchool combines project-based learning, rigorous academics, community involvement, and diverse co-curricular opportunities to prepare students to become 21st-century citizens of the world. As Carolyn notes, "at AltSchool, we honor children's capacity to drive their own learning through curiosity and grit. We believe that technology can give educators super-powers to know their students well and plan engaging and challenging learning experiences."
