There is a difference between personalization, differentiation and individualization. Barbara Bray and Kathleen McClaskey developed this chart on the differences on approaches to teaching and learning. We have updated many of the sections since you may have downloaded our chart before. We welcome all feedback and thank so many of you. We needed to update the version one more time to version 3 to reflect all the feedback and input from so many around the world.
The biggest concern for those that were referring to this PDI chart was assessment. In our 5 W's eCourse and Six Steps to Personalize Learning workshop, we discussed the terms assessment AS, FOR, and OF with the participants. After much reflection, we realized that with each of the terms in this chart indicated different approaches to assessment. Several other sections were revised based on deep discussions with teachers. Thank you to all who have helped us make this chart a tool you can use as you transform teaching and learning!
