Personalized learning experiences involving reading, writing and mathematics as well as problem solving, collaboration and creativity are required to prepare students to operate in a twenty-first century global society.
There is no personalized learning unless you are at risk or falling behind.
I think that “twenty-first-century global society” is redundant. The 21st century society IS global. I guess I object to the overuse of “global”; it becomes a catch-phrase and seems insincere. Students need to be prepared to operate in a global society; they need to be prepared to operate in the 21st century – it’s one and the same!
This comment refers to most of the focus areas. To be relevant, provide access and variety, personalize, etc., districts need to be releases from governmental constraints. School start dates, textbook mandates, and seat time set limitations that are restrictive to individualization. Districts need to be able to have digital texts, start school year when appropriate for community, and advance students when competent and achieve mastery, not prescribed amount of time. We need to move out of factory model…school with no walls and students with 24/7 access to instructional tools and learning opportunities.
I think its important for every child to go through the same processes so that they each have the same fair advantage. http://t.co/D8E3vgr0
Learning that involves application of a variety of different skills will help students to learn when and where to use certain skills in problem solving. This will help students to learn the value of these skills and internalize them.
