Matsuoka Outlines ‘Personalized Learning’ Strategies

Santa Barbara Unified School District’s facilities bond success in the 11/8 election sets a course toward outfitting classrooms and administration buildings with state-of-the-art networks and wireless access. The bandwidth upgrade will help close achievement gaps among students from various socioeconomic backgrounds, according to Superintendent Cary Matsuoka. At the 11/17 board meeting, which starts at 6:30 p.m. at 720 Santa Barbara Street, Matsuoka will introduce the district’s roadmap toward more “personalized learning” experiences that don’t dump every student into a once-size-fits-all curriculum. These new approaches will rely on modern learning tools, and the district aims to one day achieve a 1:1 student-to-device ratio.
