Is Personalized Learning the Future of School?
Paz-Albo, Jesús
Childhood Education, v93 n4 p295-299 2017
This article describes an innovative teaching approach that can offer the changes needed for school improvement. When entering an Education: Basic and Interactive (EBI) classroom, one will see students focused on accomplishing self-guided tasks and eager to move on to the next challenge in their self-paced learning. The EBI Project described here is based on the Iruaritz-Lezama Foundation pedagogical model, an innovative model of customized teaching focused on creating a personalized teaching environment that caters to all students' needs. Personalization results as students and educators adjust their thinking and understanding about their roles and how people learn. This educational methodology enables students to work according to their own unique learning rhythm, helping them develop strategies to overcome challenges along their learning journey and achieve their goals. The seeds of this dramatic transformation in education are being planted in the state of Washington as some Seattle schools are restructuring themselves in adopting the EBI framework. Participating schools receive target instructional and professional development time and resources from the implementation team so they can adopt this personalized learning and individualize instruction methodology and accelerate students' personal and academic growth and achievement. By doing so, Seattle schools will provide a customized teaching and learning experience to support their students as they embark on this pedagogical model for school improvement.
