To hear Taylor County Schools Assistant Superintendent Charles Higdon tell it, students shouldn’t be allowed to drop out of school—at least not without a fight. “We have implemented a ‘zero dropout’ policy that does not allow students to drop out of our district,” he said. But rather than imprisoning students in front-facing classrooms, the rural Kentucky district is instead trying to entice at-risk, and even low-risk, st

Whether you have a surplus of resources in a new building or the barren classroom that I unlocked on day one, all over the world teachers are preparing the physical environment for the work that is ahead.

A Beginner's Guide To Personalized Learning - TeachThought

A Beginner's Guide To Personalized Learning - TeachThought | 21st Century Concepts- Student-Centered Learning | Scoop.it
There is a difference between personalized learning and differentiation.

Differentiation is a kind of personalized instruction, where teachers adjust process, & product, according to a student’s readiness, interest, & learning style. Planning of the learning starts with the content, and the content remains the same for all students. This is a school and curriculum-centered approach that attempts to amend the delivery of the content to match the student’s needs, strengths, and general readiness.

Personalized learning starts with the learner and asks the question, “What does this student need to understand, and how best can that happen?” This is a student-centered approach, and is built around the idea of recognizing the vast differences in students–not just in terms of literacy or schema, but an authentic need to know.

The Goldilocks' Principle: Labels Limit Learners

The Goldilocks' Principle: Labels Limit Learners | 21st Century Concepts- Student-Centered Learning | Scoop.it
“Do special education students suffer from our lower expectations or from a state's expectations that may be too high? Only Goldilocks' knows.” "I worry that students who are labeled as special education get our lower expectations because we don't think they can do more than they are doing, when we should really be helping them do more than they believe they can do. I worry that co-teaching still means very expensive finger pointers who walk silently around the room pointing at ditto after ditto."
