Looking to Personalize Learning? Yes! Now What??

"Moving towards personalized learning is like starting to drive on the left hand side of the road in after a lifetime of driving on the right. Absolutely everything flips." continues EdSurge.

Personalized learning isn’t a project to be grafted onto the traditional-school-model side of the road. It’s a fundamental shift away from a curriculum- and teaching-centered orientation toward one that instead is learning- and student-centered. So, how can education leaders pursue such a massive shift deliberately and thoughtfully?

Here are five suggestions and tools to get you started. They are based on what we have observed from the Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) grant recipients who have designed or redesigned whole schools to be personalized through student-centered, competency-based, blended, and other next gen learning strategies. Use them to catalyze the conversations, outreach and extensive design work that must happen before widespread changes in the learning model are actually introduced in your schools.
