Personalized Learning-What Is It?
By: Boehning, Lavigne, Logan, Lowery, Smith and Turner
Definition and Clarification
Personalized learning is the tailoring of pedagogy, curriculum and learning environments by learners or for learners in order to meet their different learning needs and aspirations.
Personalization is broader than just individualization or differentiation in that it affords the learner a degree of choice about what is learned, when it is learned and how it is learned.
“Schools may create or offer students a variety of learning pathways—i.e., a wider and more diverse selection of learning experiences.”
