As Seen in Classrooms: Personalized Learning in Action!
Spanish teachers Emily Hernandez (North HS) and Cheryl Belott (Butler MS) are members of the 2016 Institute for Personalized Learning Studies Cohort, which kicked off in January and concludes in November. Emily also brought a team of Spanish 1 students with her to the Personalized Learning Youth Summit in February at Les Paul Middle School.
We began our journey together with personalized learning in Fall of 2014, and we're digging further into the essential teaching and learning components of the Honeycomb. As Emily, Cheryl and I learn, they are determining the ways they can better personalize the learning environment for students with manageable steps being part of a traditional classroom/school structure.
Reach out to either of them if you have questions about their journey and wish to learn more!
