Warning: True Confession of an Educator Ahead…I always find it quite confusing when educators tell me that students in their classroom are reading at a 7th grade reading level. What does that really mean?

Technology: I chose this resource because this shows why digital portfolios are good ways to track student work. I am in the midst of creating a proposal for portfolios being implemented and this gets me thinking of other ways that we could implements portfolios instead of paper versions.

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, October 19, 2016 8:55 AM
"The push to design teaching and learning around students’ distinctive academic needs, and even their personal interests, is no longer only happening in pockets of experimentation around the country. This trend has now entered the K-12 mainstream and its expansion is quickening. But the challenges ahead for the next generation of personalized learning initiatives are significant. The research evidence to support comprehensive personalized learning is thin, the approach requires big investments in educational technology, and educators must be committed to transforming how they teach for it to work."
