The Stages of PLE was designed to provide a process when personalizing learning. When teachers see there is a process that lets them dip their toes in personalized learning, they see it is possible.
Stage One is Teacher-Centered with learner voice and choice.
Stage Two is Learner-Centered with teacher and learner as co-designer.
Stage Three is Learner-Driven with teacher and learner as partners in learning.
Barbara Bray and Kathleen McClaskey created the Stages of PLE when they were working together. They are now on their own and have expanded on what they do best. Barbara has her website at https://barbarabray.net and Kathleen has her website at http://www.kathleenmcclaskey.com.
