Personalization vs Differentiation vs Individualization

Personalization vs Differentiation vs Individualization | Personalize It! | Scoop.it

Here's a chart that explains the differences between personalization, differentiation, and individualization. After some research on these terms, Barbara Bray and I were able to determine the differences between these terms in relationship to teaching and learning.

Thank you for your comment. Kathleen and I are looking for feedback on how educators are using this chart.

I am in Wisconsin and we are part of CESA 1 NxGL. I team teach with 42 kindergarten kids and we are using personalized learning. We are working through the tangles of being able to personalize with kids who are just learning to read, write and compute. It has always been a struggle to be able to differentiate the difference between true personalized learning vs. differentiation and individualization. You have done a beautiful job of creating a chart that makes this clearer for all stakeholders. This chart will be useful for helping colleagues, administration and parents see the true definition of personalized learning and the potential that it holds.

Hello rwteam in WI,

Thank you for your comments on this chart that Barbara and I created. We would be glad to have you share this with your colleagues in WI and elsewhere. We commend you and your teams in CESA 1 NxGL on the hard work that you are doing to make personalized learning a realty for your students.

E3:OSSI - Personalized Environment

A personalized learning environment is characterized by the ability of students and adults in the school to develop meaningful, sustained connections to one another. In a personalized learning environment, students are treated as individuals; they are given responsibility, spoken to honestly, and treated with dignity and respect. Through these connections teachers get to know students well; they become familiar with students’ learning styles, interests, backgrounds, and goals.

What can the world learn from Finland?

What can the world learn from Finland? | Personalize It! | Scoop.it
. . . Finland's success, including less teaching time than in many countries, pupils spending less time studying (children start schooling aged seven) and fewer tests. Finland favours holistic and personalised learning over core subjects and standardisation. And he emphasised that genuine collaboration and striving for equity for all pupils had a central role to play.

3 BC Educators Discuss Personalized Learning – Part 1 | Personalize It! | Scoop.it

"There has been a lot of conversation taking place throughout the province on Personalized Learning and it is great to see conversation centered on students happening. In conversations we are having with individuals, we have found that there is still some confusion about personalized learning. With that in mind 4Moms1Dream set out to interview 3 of BC’s education leaders, on the topic of personalized learning:

 

· David Wees (DW), author of the 21st Century Educator blog is an educator at Stratford Hall in Vancouver.

· Chris Wejr (CW), Principal of Kent Elementary School in Agassiz, through his blog The Wejr Board shares his experience and thoughts on educational topics with readers.

· Chris Kennedy (CK) is the Superintendent in SD 45, West Vancouver. You can follow him on his blog – Culture of Yes."

PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION by Keefe and Jenkins

Personalization of instruction and learning is the effort on the part of a school to take into account individual student characteristics and needs, and flexible instructional practices, in organizing the learning environment.  Teachers committed to personalizing instruction help their students develop personal learning plans, assist in diagnosing their cognitive strengths and weaknesses and other style characteristics, help adapt the learning environment and instruction to learner needs and interests, and mentor authentic and reflective learning experiences for their students.
