  3. 3. Personalized Learning Personalized learning refers to instruction that is paced to learning needs, tailored to learning preferences, and tailored to the specific interests of different learners. In an environment that is fully personalized, the learning objectives and content as well as the method and pace may all vary (so personalization encompasses differentiation and individualization). - US Department of Education “Transforming American Education: Learning Powered by Technology” (2010)
  4. 4. PersonalizedFacilitated Personalized  “Individual” centered, choice/autonomy  Often not an instructor presence (serves more as mentor/advisor)  Independent pacing  Authentic performances & portfolio  Data & Student Choices = curriculum driver  Student driven assessment  Application/Creation Learning  Modular Facilitated  “Class” centered  Instructor presence  Collaboration with students  Structured, set timeframe and pacing  Set curriculum = driver  Teacher driven assessment  Transactional Learning  Holistic (Set Outcomes)
  5. 5. Classroom “The World” On Your Own
  6. 6. Issues with Implementation • Troubles with definitions • Technology system management requires resources • Content dilemma • Pathways to post-secondary • Coordination statewide
  7. 7. A Systems Approach The AEAs are committed to the delivery of a Student Personalized Learning System. It will allow districts a seamless way to flexibly offer different student solutions for: • Personalized Learning • Competency Based Education • Student Portfolios • Career Pathways • Credit/Component Recovery
  8. 8. Key Content Pieces Our content catalog will build from many different locations • Individual District/Teacher Submission & Community Contributions • OER (Open-Source) Content • AEA PD Online content (training system, OLLIE series, K- 12 server lessons, etc) • Other Partners (e.g. Institute for Excellence and Ethics)
  9. 9. Key Needs AEA PD Online cannot do this alone. We have several needs we need fulfilled externally for this system to succeed. • One-time funding for targeted development • Partner identification & awareness • Common vision and buy-in from stakeholders in this format for personalized learning • Leveraging this system for out-of-state sales to fuel further development
  10. 10.
