Short Session Description

Design new pathways for students with learner profiles, personalized learning maps and digital backpacks.


Full Session Description

Objectives: Participants will:
  • understand the importance of each student knowing how they learn best so they are prepared for their future as global citizens.
  • learn about personalizing learning so students are co-learners and co-designers of the curriculum.

Schools are not meeting the needs of today's learners. Each student is unique. However, schools were set up as "one size meets all" organizations with teachers as experts.  Learners of all ages are self-organizing learning objects, creating their PLN, and joining social networks to pursue their own interests. The roles of teachers and students are changing. The world is getting smaller and flatter. Global projects work when each student uses their strengths to make the team work effectively to meet the goals of the project.

Looks like a great proposal, Barbara... would love it if you could include more of a global perspective by including non-USA schools, too, and concrete example of global projects!
