Elliot Washor, co-founder of Big Picture Learning, reflects on what Personalization means. Joins us in a free live webinar on April 22nd at 5pm ET where Elliot will share his professional insights on personalization.

 

Here are just a few excerpts from this post that looks deeper into the meaning of personalization.

 

"Since our beginnings, personalization has been at the core of our work. We strive for schools to be communities where every student is known through their interests, academics and how they are doing socially and emotionally in and outside of school. "

 

"Structures in schools — like personalized learning plans that start with each student’s voice, choice and interests where parents, teachers and mentors are involved in understanding and developing the next steps, courses and projects a student will do ‑—need to be part of any learning environment and can become a great digital technology platform. Instead, what we get is a hijacking of words and terms that sound like education is personalized. Sadly, the real practice these words symbolize is missing from far too many schools and most digital platforms."
