“Transforming education toward personalized competency-based learning in support of whole-child development is essential and complex work. This practical guide to reinventing schools offers a valuable map of the kinds of variables schools can consider, along with much-needed guidance on the complex process of guiding change in specific places and systems.”

Katherine Prince, vice president of strategic foresight, KnowledgeWorks

“There’s no one way to begin shifting the paradigm from time-based industrial models of schooling to competency-based systems. This book provides multiple pathways to progress in shifting our systems that are currently designed to rank and sort children toward contemporary, personalized approaches and competency-based systems of learning for building student success. It offers holistic guidance on moving the needle, and the authors recognize this requires more than piecemeal change. It offers a variety of options to foment important conversations to drive toward system transformation.”

Susan Patrick, president & CEO, Aurora Institute

Vision and Action is a comprehensive, thoughtful explication of personalized learning. Reigeluth and Karnopp succeed in knitting together specific illustrations of practice and organizational design within a coherent and accessible conceptual framework. As a result, readers will enjoy both the breadth and depth of this interesting examination of a breakthrough approach to learning.”

Nick Donohue, president & CEO, The Nellie Mae Education Foundation

“Personalized and competency-based learning is a team sport—and Vision and Action is the playbook for the whole team. It’s a great how-to book for a system. It’s a good read by yourself, but it’s even better if school and system leaders study it together. I love the attention paid to new roles that are created and the new cultural behaviors that are required by personalized and competency-based learning.”

Tom Vander Ark, CEO, Getting Smart

“This book comes at just the right time to address a major need in the field. It cuts through the hype and rhetoric around ‘personalized learning’ to offer specific and comprehensive guidance on how to transform school systems. The structure of the book also makes it easy to digest, review, and refer back to while traveling the journey toward personalized, competency-based education.”

Thomas Arnett, senior education research fellow, Clayton Christensen Institute
