Learning Gets Personal
McLester, Susan
District Administration, v47 n3 p30-32, 34, 36, 45 Mar 2011
At education conferences, as well as in professional association reports, as a target area of funding for nonprofit foundations and in the literature of industry vendors, the term, "personalized learning" has taken center stage in an arena already crowded with complex and long-standing issues and concerns. While personalized learning is making some headway across the nation in front-running programs and districts, it still represents a sweeping, systemic change to American education--and one that the public and educators who are untrained in methods of innovation are likely to find too threatening. Former Chugach superintendent Richard DeLorenzo and others agree that the greatest challenge to transforming learning is communicating a practical vision of what a "transformed school" would look like. Arming teachers with skills and resources and closing the knowledge gap between schools and communities might be part of a crucial step toward ensuring the future success of children.
