Let it Flow personalized learning

ACCORDING TO THE GLOSSARY OF EDUCATIONAL REFORM, THE TERM PERSONALIZED LEARNING REFERS TO A DIVERSE VARIETY OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, LEARNING EXPERIENCES, INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACHES, AND ACADEMIC-SUPPORT STRATEGIES THAT ARE INTENDED TO ADDRESS THE DISTINCT LEARNING NEEDS, INTERESTS, ASPIRATIONS, OR CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS OF INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS.

Notice that it never mentions a specific way that you must do this or that you must use technology!

The way I see it, you only need to do 2 things to personalize learning: 1. Engage students 2. Use formative assessments to differentiate instruction

In fact, You are probably already doing personalized learning in your classroom right now!

Do you give students choice, allow them to practice independent work skills, pre-test students' knowledge before a unit, or use formative assessments to check for understanding?

You are on the right track!

Now, Let's take your personalized learning to the next level.

With FLOW charts!

Flow charts allow students to work independently and make choices based on personal data and preferred learning styles. They do not have to be technology based!
