Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this session is to supply attendees with knowledge and resources to successfully shift from a "legacy" classroom to an environment where learners are empowered to use voice and choice to develop individual learning pathways. This can be done through leveraging technology, such as GAFE and AR/VR apps, in conjunction with PBL and STEAM. Our objective is to show attendees how all of these pieces naturally meld together to create a fluid environment for all learning styles.
We will share evidence based practices used along with tools and resources collaboratively created to begin implementing elements of personalized learning in their classrooms. Through the implementation of this learner-driven environment, evidence has shown a dramatic increase in student growth and engagement. Based on this evidence, we have been involved in implementing and mentoring districts in IL, WI, and OH with their transition toward personalizing learning.

Outline

General overview of the following topics:
Environment- Challenges and expectations shifting from a "legacy" style to personalized learning classroom.
Learner Profiles- Gives educators a better picture of a learner's strengths and interests in order to remove barriers that keep students from learning and/or demonstrating their learning. Includes academic and personal success skills.
Personalized Learning Plans- Individual data-driven goal setting and demonstration of mastery utilizing PBL, STEAM, and SAMR.
Resources- collection of CCSS aligned resource pages to be used for PLPs.
