RtI in a Personalized Learning Environment

RtI in a Personalized Learning Environment | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Response to Intervention (RtI) can target each learner's needs when they need it as they need it.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Instead of waiting until a learner fails, you can target each learner's specific learning needs when they need it as they need it. In fact, in a Personalized Learning Environment, learners own and drive their learning by designing their learning goals with their teacher. The teacher uses interventions based on the learning goals right from the beginning of the learning process.

Finding Coherence with RtI and Personalized Learning

Finding Coherence with RtI and Personalized Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

"One of the constant challenges facing educators is to find coherence in the work we are doing. We need to understand how our efforts relate to and support each other in pursuit of student learning.  This task can be difficult, especially in an environment where we are working to transform our education system while also trying to maximize student success in the current system. The relationship between efforts to implement Response to Intervention (RtI) systems and our work to personalize learning offers a good example of this dilemma.

 

The Personalized Learning Initiative advocates a different organization and approach to learning that is committed to getting learning right the first time. The goal of personalized learning is for students to experience their maximum rate of progress as the level of challenge and complexity in their learning grows so that falling behind is not a concern.

 

RtI and personalized learning differ from the perspective of the type of educational systems within which they are presumed and designed to exist. For the most part, RtI is designed to serve within the current system where batch processing of learners and learning is part of the design.

 

An educational system that is designed to support personalized learning is structured differently from the current system. Instruction is designed to wrap around the learner at all times. The framework of a personalized learning approach enables educators to position intervention to occur as soon as the learner needs it."

The Personalized Learning Umbrella

The Personalized Learning Umbrella | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Personalized Learning is the "umbrella" or the big picture of transforming teaching and learning. Schools and districts are confused about all the initiatives and how they fit with personalizing learning. Many of the initiatives and programs that are implemented in a school or district can contribute to personalized learning.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Personalized learning is all about the learner and starts with the learner. It is about the learner self-directing and driving their own learning. A teacher can flip the classroom, provide 1:1 mobile devices for each learner and this can still not be characterized as personalizing learning. If the class is still teacher-centered and learners have no voice and choice how they learn, it is not personalizing learning. If learners are using mobile devices with adaptive curriculum, the technology is personalizing learning for the learner. There is no stake in learning for the learner. Adaptive curriculum can support a personalized learning path, but it is not personalizing learning for the learner.

 

So when you consider different approaches that have been labeled as Personalized Learning, they may be right, somewhat. Here are some initiatives or school or district based programs that fall under the umbrella of Personalized Learning:  Blended learning, Competency-based education, RTI, Flipped Classrooms, 1:1 and Project-based Learning (PBL).

Finding Coherence with RtI and Personalized Learning

One of the constant challenges facing educators is to find coherence in the work we are doing. We need to understand how our efforts relate to and support each other in pursuit of student learning.

 

Jim Rickabaugh is the Director of Institute @ CESA #1 in Wisconsin. "The relationship between efforts to implement Response to Intervention (RtI) systems and our work to personalize learning offers a good example of this dilemma." 

 

Rickabaugh explains ahow a split screen approach to leadership applies here. "The framework of a personalized learning approach enables educators to position intervention to occur as soon as the learner needs it. As a result, success is designed in from the beginning and learners are less likely to experience the loss of confidence that too often accompanies repeated failure to learn in the current system."
