Personalized Learning / Approaches that individualize learning for each student based on specific strengths and needs, student interests, and/or individualized goals.
In an education model where students are truly at the center, learning is tailored to individual students’ strengths, needs, and personal interests. Learning opportunities take into account existing knowledge, skills, and abilities, set high expectations, and push students in supportive ways to reach their personal goals.
The definition of personalized learning is rapidly evolving and its difference from other Next Gen Topics—like next gen learning and blended learning—may not be clear. Personalized learning can take place in digitally enhanced environments or not. NGLC proposes that next gen learning incorporates personalized learning and that seamless integration with technology is needed to implement it effectively, affordably, and at significant scale. For more explanation, read Moving Towards Next Gen Learning on our blog.
