Project Plan: Guidance Through the Instructional Process. The Accommodation of Individual Differences in the Development of Personal Programs of Study.
Dunn, James A.
Project PLAN is designed to make educational programs fit the needs of individual learners, and the problem of how such a curriculum can be implemented is discussed. In addition to individualization of what is to be learned and amount of exposure to learning matter, individualization must also be based on the student's learning style; for example, on the various ways in which the content to be learned may be studied. This imposes a massive monitoring task which must be computerized. The paradigm for the development of a PLAN program of studies for secondary school is summarized. PLAN education, however, is designed to be more than a program of academic instruction, and guidance is an integral part of the project. The guidance program will be developed over the next few years and prototype I will implement the educational and vocational counseling effort by attempting to make the educational system vocationally and learner relevant. It calls for experiences which will increase the child's knowledge and skill in the areas of: (1) independent learning, (2) rational decision making, (3) the assessment and implication of individual differences for vocational, avocational and social choice, (4) vocational information, and (5) leisure and citizenship opportunities.
