What Personalized Learning Really Means For Modern Teachers - Edudemic

What Personalized Learning Really Means For Modern Teachers - Edudemic | MOOCs, personalization in teaching and learning | Scoop.it

added by Jennifer Kelly

 

It’s Not All About Technology

"Many people think that Personalized Learning is all about technology. It is not, although technology makes it more accessible in over-crowded classrooms. If an individual student has Internet access, that student can work independently while the teacher facilitates an in-depth discussion with a small group at another skill level. Technology empowers the teacher to keep a larger number of students at different levels moving forward simultaneously.

 

"Personalized Learning is also about improving the ability to assess student’s skills or growth in real time, rather than at the end of a unit or semester when it could be too late to redirect. Again, technology helps, but it is more about changing the mindsets of teachers, parents and students about how skills are measured and when. In addition, that ongoing assessment enables teachers and parents to better communicate about a child’s needs."
