Personalized learning gives
students multiple advantages
Choice: Encouraging student voice, guided choice, and true engagement multiplies the ways students can learn: From online tutorials, to teacher-led seminars, to collaborating with peers. Students show more interest, ownership, and pride in their work because they are able to choose their areas of interest and the means to demonstrate what they have learned.
Flexibility: The antiquated model in which a lesson is taught in only one way, at one speed lacks relevance and authenticity for digital natives who seek flexibility, choice, relevance, and meaning. Students choose how and where they learn best.
Engagement with Learning Tools: Learners have access to a variety of supportive resources and technology tools. Some may choose to use printed resources for research while others prefer to access digital content. These tools accelerate learning – they do not control it.
21st Century Skills: Students establish and refine valuable skills that will prepare them for life beyond the classroom as they pursue future careers. These skills include critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and ability to adapt to change. Learners are encouraged to make connections, investigate, inquire, and bring new insights into their learning, along with the strategies and skills provided by the teacher. This type of learning promotes skill development required for success in today’s job market.
