Making Learning Personal

“Personalized learning empowers students with voice and choice in the learning process.  It is a student-centered approach that is facilitated by the teacher based on each learner’s mastery of the standards.  A personalized approach will take into account each learner's unique learning style, abilities, and interests.  It is built on the premise that learning happens anywhere, anytime in flexible learning spaces.”
