Learning IS Personal

Learning is personal. Each of us is unique. Because learners are so diverse, learning needs to start with each learner.

Thank you for sharing. If you follow Howard Garner's multi-intelligence theories, then learning is individual.

"Learners, not students":  Love it!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 3, 2013 11:54 AM

We have known for a long time learning is personal. It should have been important for a long time and not just in 2013.

What Personalized Learning Really Means For Modern Teachers - Edudemic

It’s Not All About Technology

"Many people think that Personalized Learning is all about technology. It is not, although technology makes it more accessible in over-crowded classrooms. If an individual student has Internet access, that student can work independently while the teacher facilitates an in-depth discussion with a small group at another skill level. Technology empowers the teacher to keep a larger number of students at different levels moving forward simultaneously.

 

"Personalized Learning is also about improving the ability to assess student’s skills or growth in real time, rather than at the end of a unit or semester when it could be too late to redirect. Again, technology helps, but it is more about changing the mindsets of teachers, parents and students about how skills are measured and when. In addition, that ongoing assessment enables teachers and parents to better communicate about a child’s needs."
