What is PersonalizED Learning?

PersonalizED Learning builds on and responds to the varied strengths, needs, skills, and aspirations of each learner. Students engage in authentic, meaningful experiences and tasks to ensure they maximize progress toward mastery of the learning dispositions and academic standards that will prepare them for success both in and out of school. Below are five principles of PersonalizED Learning established by the Center for Collaborative Learning.

The Five Principles of PersonalizED Learning: 

  • Competency-Based Learning: Students move at their optimal pace and receive credit when they demonstrate mastery of competencies—or learning targets—at each new level.

  • Flexible Learning: Time, space, and teacher roles adapt to the needs of students through the use of technology and flexible structures, rather than being a fixed, "one size fits all" experience.

  • Student-Ownership: Students exercise voice and choice in their learning and co-create personal academic profiles and learning plans focused on student interests, aspirations, and learning challenges.

  • Dispositional Learning: With a focus on equity, identity, and concern for others, students develop the attitudes and habits necessary for academic growth and preparation for life in a global society.

  • Authentic Learning Experiences: Students engage in standards-aligned workplace, project- and community-based learning, with multiple opportunities to demonstrate what they know and are able to do.
