Teaching the teachers: ‘5 Ws’ course sets the foundation for personalization

Teaching the teachers: ‘5 Ws’ course sets the foundation for personalization | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

“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.
