“It’s a foundational course,” Betty Wottreng explained. “It gives us a common vocabulary; a common way to talk about it so we’re calling it the same thing. I think that’s critical for this so we’re all talking about this in the same way.”


The 5 W's of Personalized Learning course has been optional for teachers so far, just as embracing personalized learning in general has been. But the administration team has agreed every teacher must take the course soon, Wottreng said, to line up with the school board’s personalized learning timeline, which calls for personalized learning plans to be in place for the 2016-17 school year.


Learn more about the 5 W's of Personalized Learning at http://www.personalizelearning.com/p/5-ws.html. Fall Session starts on September 23rd.

Discover how Verona Area School District has begun the journey to create a personalized learning system across the school district. They have a belief system and have described how they will know how every learner is successful. Here they are:

 

> Every learner in VASD has a personalized learning plan that provides a path to discovery and achievement and that plan is reviewed and changed at least annually based on the learner’s needs.

 > Every learner’s parent, guardian or advocate participates directly in the design, implementation, and outcomes of that learner’s personalized learning plans.

 > Every learner meets or exceeds the goals of his or her personalized learning plan every school year.            
> Every VAHS learner graduates. Every VAHS graduate achieves their choice of college and career path, as detailed in their personalized learning plan.
