Making Learning Personal
A Conversation with Kathleen McClaskey
All of our students have stories to tell. Learning more about our learners’ stories is the focus of our discussion with personalized learning expert Kathleen McClaskey. What are their challenges? Their interests? Their dreams? Kathleen shares the benefits of personalized learning and valuable tools of implementation, such as using learning profiles and gathering student voice. Look for critical connections between Universal Design for Learning and personalized learning. Kathleen brings next-day ideas to making learning personal. Because, after all, it’s their learning, right?
Kathleen has graciously shared 2 urgently resourceful documents: One clarifies the differences between personalization, differentiation and individualization. The other is stages of personalization. Must haves and free downloads!
Kathleen’s personal definition she uses in the podcast:
“Personalized learning is not what is done to the learner or about tailoring the learning. It is about helping each learner to identify and develop the skills they need to support and enhance their own learning so that agency and self-advocacy can be realized.”
