SIIA Posts Top 10 Components of Personalized Learning

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), in collaboration with ASCD and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), today released Innovate to Educate: System [Re]Design for Personalized Learning.  This report of findings is based upon the insights and recommendations of some 150 visionary education leaders convened at an August 4-6, 2010 Symposium in Boston, Mass.
Symposium participants jointly identified the following top ten essential elements and policy enablers of personalized learning:
Essential Elements
1. Flexible, Anytime/Everywhere Learning
2. Redefine Teacher Role and Expand “Teacher”
3. Project-Based, Authentic Learning
4. Student Driven Learning Path
5. Mastery/Competency-Based Progression/Pace
Policy Enablers
1. Redefine Use of Time (Carnegie Unit/Calendar)
2. Performance-Based, Time-Flexible Assessment
3. Equity in Access to Technology Infrastructure
4. Funding Models that Incentivize Completion
5. P-20 Continuum and Non-grade Band System
The report is available at the personalized learning overview page and provides a road map to accelerate the redesign of the current, mass production education model to a student-centered, customized learning model that will better engage, motivate, and prepare our students to be career and college ready.
