Personalized Learning

What is Personalized Learning?

Personalized learning is a learner-driven approach to instruction that empowers students to take ownership of their learning. Using this flexible approach, educators help students:

  • Overcome Obstacles to learning by meeting them where they are, co-constructing goals, supporting learners’ choices and collaboratively monitoring progress
  • Co-design and facilitate authentic learning pathways, experiences and assessments aligned to equitable supports around learners’ needs, interests, aspirations and cultural backgrounds to prepare them for future success
  • Accelerate Learning through evidence of learning and feedback, such as mastery and competency-based learning, allowing educators to meet learners where they are, provide them with multiple ways to show what they know, and measure and promote growth

Several educator pathways enable educators to learn about and how to apply personalized learning.
