The value in creating unique student profiles for each of your learners (often referred to as personalized learning plans or PLPs) is self-evident.
For us at Edmentum, our Individualized Learning Solution has taken us into new territory. It’s one part norm-referenced, adaptive diagnostics; one part learning path; and one part teacher timesaver—and we think that’s a pretty powerful combination.
Personalized learning isn’t a checklist. It’s an interconnected system of learning resources, surrounding the student, and orchestrated by the instructor that can be a powerful tool to drive deeper learning and engagement.
Personalized, individualized, and differentiated—three flavors of learning with just enough in common to cause a lot of confusion in the education space. At Edmentum, we've been directing our time and energy towards developing a visual definition that’s easy to follow.
Personalized learning? Blended? Individualized? Differentiated? No matter what terms you prefer to use, education is moving away from the one-size-fits-all approach to one that utilizes technology and expert teaching practices to focus on the specific needs of each unique learner.
