Five Dispositions for Personalization
Carter, Kim
Educational Leadership, v74 n6 p75-78 Mar 2017
The author reviews various ways personalized learning has come to be interpreted and asserts that rather than requiring we create individualized learning plans for each student, true personalization requires that teachers give learners the tools, knowledge, skills, and dispositions to manage themselves and their learning environment. Teachers should know their students and work with them to help them design their own learning pathways. Carter details five dispositions teachers must cultivate in themselves--and in students--to make personalization possible: curiosity, eagerness for inquiry, willingness to collaborate, good communication, and empathy.
