Personalized Learning Support for Teacher Teams
#Leading Change PLC
Are you looking to grow your own professional learning community? Maybe looking for a way to connect your team to others? Or maybe you need a place to go for advice and support to transform your teaching and learning? I would highly recommend joining the Leading Change Professional Learning Community. The #LeadingChange PLC is focused on the transformation of our classrooms through personalized learning. Currently, there are 500 active members. So imagine being able to pose an issue and receive feedback and connect with other members from around the country.
For the 2022-2023 year, I have been selected as a Leading Change Fellow to lead this group and help promote collaboration to support the members. I would love to see a presence of Ohio Educators in this group, plus it will grow your network. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or you can call or text at 937-508-8680. Follow the link below to join the group.
Supporting Personalized Learning Across SE Ohio
What is Personalized Learning?
- Instruction aligned to rigorous academic standards and social-emotional skills learners need.
- Customized instruction that allows each student to design learning experiences aligned to his or her interests (Learner Agency).
- Varied pacing of instruction based on individual learner needs, allowing students to accelerate or take additional time based on their level of mastery. (Path and Pace)
- Real-time differentiation of instruction, supports and interventions based on data from formative assessments and student feedback to ensure every student remains on track.
To find out more details, please reach out to me. I can work with individual teachers, grade levels, buildings, districts.
