Pam Lowe shares her story about her 4 year-old niece and her insight into personalized learning:
"Basically at the wise old age of four, the question my niece was asking me that currently many educators and schools are struggling to comprehend was,

“Why can’t learning be personalized?”

When a child can recognize the need for personalized learning, why can’t our education system? My niece is not viewing personalized learning as a buzzword or a fad. She is viewing personalized learning as a right that is due her as a learner." - See more at:

The comment and question in the image are misleading. Systems are not people. They are made up of people. Teachers understand students are people who have faces, names, and stories. That is how we experience personalizing and realating with students.
