Lisa Welch and Wanda Richardson are Kindergarten Teachers in Wisconsin who are personalizing learning for their students. They share their story in how they they needed to rethink personalize learning for their students. Here are they questions they reflected on as they created new learning paths for their students.
> "How can you personalize learning for students who are not yet able to read?
> How can you help student’s become independent learners at this young age?
> How can the 4 c’s of 21st Century Learning make their way into everything we do?
> How can we impart that core knowledge that is vital at this age?
We don’t have all the answers by any means, but we are certainly finding that we are on an exciting path at this time! Currently, every child in our classroom has a PERSONALIZED Learning Plan. These plans are created according to the child’s interests in learning styles as well as in subject areas. For example, one child is studying the subway and is interested in creating on the computer, math and music/dancing."
Thank you Lisa and Wanda for sharing this story!
