How can we design learning experiences that are more in tune with the contemporary world we are living in and the students we have in front of us? The true goal of personalized learning is for every student to become a self-directed learner through the design and development of their learning experiences. In this session, Allison Zmuda will explore with participants how personalized learning is a simple and powerful frame that allows students to thoughtfully engage with inquiry, generate ideas, and develop challenging yet achievable performance opportunities. In order for students to work in this rich environment, they will need to develop Habits of Mind. By the end of the conference, participants will be able to: explore why personalized learning is important for student engagement and learning; understand how students can become self-directed when Personalized Learning is connected with Habits of Mind; differentiate Personalized Learning from other similar instructional models; examine and apply the four attributes to reimagine learning experiences; explore powerful school examples of Personalized Learning; and identify practices that support Personalized Learning.
