Speak Up Reports - Personalizing the Classroom Experience

Speak Up Reports - Personalizing the Classroom Experience | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Personalizing the Classroom Experience – Teachers, Librarians and Administrators Connects the Dots with Digital Learning is the second in a two part series to document the key national findings from Speak Up 2011. This report focuses on how today’s educators are personalizing the learning process for students. The ways that educators are personalizing learning centers around their own experiences with online learning, socially-based media and digital content - much like the students in their own classrooms are already doing!
