About Personalized Learning
With the dramatic changes over the past century in our
student population, communications tools, access to information,
knowledge of how and why students learn, curriculum options,
and technology, WHY are we still teaching the vast majority
of our students in the same obsolete, one-size-fits-all,
factory assembly-line classroom-based model developed
over a century ago?
Changing the way we deliver education to reflect
21st century student needs and leading-edge learning
tools and technology?
Putting the needs of each student first?
Tailoring learning to the needs and interests
of each child?
Honoring and supporting every child to reach
his or her greatest potential?
delivery from an industrial assembly-line design
