This handbook is intended to provide guidance for educators interested in exploring the potential of personalisation to transform curriculum design and teaching practices. It is aimed primarily at educational leaders involved in curriculum and teaching innovation. This includes headteachers of primary and secondary schools, curriculum managers responding to recent changes to the National Curriculum, classroom teachers responsible for developing new practices, and local authorities. It should also be relevant to teacher training agencies and departments, and to trainees preparing to enter the teaching workforce. It responds to some recent educational policies (for example, the new Key Stage 3 National Curriculum introduced in 2008), and anticipates others (reform of the Key Stage 4 National Curriculum and the recommendations of the Rose Review of the primary curriculum), and relates to the conclusions of a House of Commons inquiry into the National Curriculum produced in 2009.

The Principal implemented the program with the students before the teachers and the students loved it and were able to understand concepts using the program that they could not understand through their teacher. The students were motivated to “teach” their teachers how to use the program, which in-turn motivated the teachers in seeing how enthusiastic the students were.
