This is a cross-post and adapted version of Dr. Jackie Gerstein's post that provides strategies so we can really understand and see the uniqueness in every learner.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Jackie shares her post and describes 9 different strategies that teachers can use to see each learner and their qualities that make them special. She begins with "LIsten more than talk" and ends with "Overtly show learners you care".


Thank you, Jackie for always inspiring us to be better educators!

About the 4 Key Components of Personalised Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

The National College for School Leadership outlines the key components to personalised learning along with case studies, practical tools, reflective questions and the results of a national survey in the UK.  

 

"Personalising learning is the process which empowers the learner, with appropriate support and advice, to decide what, where, when and how they learn.

 

Personalising learning balances the demands of the curriculum (content) with the work of the teacher (delivery) with the engagement of the individual learner. This is achieved by developing the engagement of learners in the management and design of their learning experiences."
