While personalized learning holds promise for meeting student needs, not all districts are ready to move to fully personalized learning environments.  What can educators do when differentiation is challenging to implement and not enough to challenge advanced learners, but the district isn't ready for full-scale implementation of personalized learning? 

Using personalized learning  as a programming option for advanced learners can move student learning to new levels.  Learn how you can personalize learning for advanced learners by setting data-driven targets and including student voice and choice in designing learning options.  Students are engaged and are learning content deeply while developing college and career readiness skills to nurture collaborative 21st century learners.

I will share the process, data, and products of our journey, how I became a facilitator of student learning, and why this model can work for any classroom teacher or gifted education specialist.

Participant Outcomes:

  • Understand the difference between differentiation, individualization, and personalization
  • Understand how personalization can be used to provide appropriate challenge for advanced learners
  • Understand the role of learner agency and student voice and choice in engaging students in their own learning
  • Use assessment data and student learner profiles to help students design learning opportunities.
