Using a Learning Management System to Personalise Learning for Primary School Students
Edmunds, Bronwyn; Hartnett, Maggie
Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning, v18 n1 p11-29 2014
This paper reports on one aspect of a descriptive multiple-case study which set out to explore the role of a learning management system (LMS) in personalising learning for students from the perspective of three teachers in one primary school in New Zealand. The intention was to provide insight into the role the LMS could play in classrooms when personalising learning. The research project involved gathering multiple sources of data from interviews and observations, and documentary information from the LMS. The findings suggest that the LMS has the potential to be a key part of a primary classroom environment when it is built on components that personalise learning. For the teachers in this project, one salient component of personalised learning involved ensuring learning was based on assessment for learning pedagogy and the use of the LMS as a tool to support learning. The findings highlighted the interconnected nature of personalised learning pedagogy, the LMS and classroom practice.
