Sir Ken Robinson has spent some time in British Columbia as they move to a personalized learning model. From one of those recent visits, here is what he said about Personalized Learning:
“Personalized learning, to me, is the process of contouring learning to the individuals that you’re dealing with, recognizing that we all have different strengths and weaknesses, different interests [and] different ways of learning."
“It isn’t that everyone has to learn different things, although eventually our interests will take us in different directions,” he continued. “But in terms of the things we want all people to learn … personalized learning is finding the best ways to engage with people with different interests, passions and ways of thinking."
It’s what good teachers have always known, he added. “That their job is not to teach subjects, but to teach students.”

April 22, 2012 was earth day and it got me thinking about giving freely so others can learn. I have been providing free online workshops for many years. I believe that we can all give a little for free. Giving is receiving. Our lives will be fuller and our pockets larger if we unite forces and help others get off the ground. We can provide tutoring so others can get the jobs they need to care for themselves and their families. We need you!
I would like to invite you to a discussion with Daniel Bassill and myself on how to make it happen. Daniel Bassill has been organizing non-school tutor/mentor programs in inner city high poverty neighborhoods in the USA for over 35years. We need your help to reach countries around the globe. Together, you and I can make a difference by making earth date everyday. Online learning is the key and IT4ALL Moodle is the place. With your help, we can create courses and continue making them free for those who cannot afford the tuition. In addition, if you create and facilitate a course, you can receive other courses that IT4ALL provides for free: http://www.integrating-technology.org
