“We are very excited to work with Education Elements as a part of our strong investment in our staff. We are poised to make significant progress in personalizing the educational experience for all of our students and this professional development will help us fulfill our long term goals in this endeavor.” –Sean Dusek, superintendent, Kenai Peninsula Borough School District

What is personalized learning?
Personalized learning (PL) tailors learning for the strengths, needs, and interests of every student—including enabling student voice and choice in what, how, when, and where they learn—to provide flexibility and supports which ensure mastery at the highest standards possible.

Personalized learning is the structuring of schools, classrooms, and instruction so we can better respond to the individual needs of students, instead of expecting students to fit the current mold or adapt to structures that may not be successful for them. Many of our teachers implement elements of personalized learning in their classrooms right now. The core four elements include:

  • Integrated Digital Content: digital content that allows for a differentiated path and pace
  • Targeted Instruction: instruction aligned to specific student needs and learning goals
  • Data Driven Decisions: frequent data collection that informs instructional decisions and groupings
  • Student Reflection and Ownership: ongoing student reflection that promotes ownership of learning
