Enabling Educators to Support Personalized Learning
Are you seeing personalized learning in a few classrooms, but not across all teachers? Join us to explore the fundamentals of personalized learning and ways to grow across an entire school or district. During this time we will review the Core 4 of personalized learning, provide tips for how to reflect on current practices and share ways PL can support accelerated learning and build on current practices.
Outcomes from session:
Assessing the Current State and Setting a Clear Purpose
In this session we will discuss the importance of having a clear purpose that guides the implementation and improvement of personalized learning. We will look at ways to reflect on the current state of instructional practices to highlight strengths and identify opportunities for growth. We will also look at ways to engage stakeholders, to strengthen investment and ownership of personalized learning.
Increasing Student Engagement through Personalized Learning Models
Having strong instructional models and instructional designs helps educators be flexible and meet the needs of students. More importantly, personalized learning models increase student choice, ownership and engagement. This session will show ways to build skills that teachers have mastered and ways to leverage technology to create additional paths for learning and increase student engagement. It is important to also build the skills to distribute authority to those closest to each decision.
Skill Up: Choose Your Own Adventure
Join us to explore a topic of interest, based on the group’s feedback from the first three sessions. Topics offered could include: collaboration and creativity, nurturing trust across teams, growing leaders, building empathy with stakeholders, building responsive roadmaps, student engagement, learning recovery, reflection and goal setting.
