Student Engagement: Key to Personalized Learning
Ferlazzo, Larry
Educational Leadership, v74 n6 p28-33 Mar 2017
Personalized learning has the potential to greatly improve student achievement--but realistic teachers know that any instructional strategy will only be effective if students are willing to do the work. That is why Larry Ferlazzo emphasizes the importance of weaving intrinsic motivation into every personalized learning classroom. Four key elements of instruction that promote intrinsic motivation, he writes, are autonomy, competence, relatedness, and relevance. Ferlazzo offers many specific ways in which he promotes these qualities in his teaching--some strategies that use technology and some that use non-tech approaches. Although his students are English language learners, these approaches can be equally useful for other students.
