Students at the Center: Personalized Learning with Habits of Mind
In this session, Dr. Kallick will define and describe personalized learning as a simple and powerful frame that allows students to thoughtfully engage with inquiry, generate ideas, and develop challenging yet achievable performance opportunities. She will distinguish personalized learning from differentiated and individualized learning and introduce four attributes that provide indicators of a personalized learning environment. She will provide many examples in which she shows how the curriculum is designed to intentionally move students to more ownership and engagement by linking the dispositions to inquiry.
February 3, 2017, 10:30 am - 1:00 pm - (including lunch) at Whitby Castle in Rye, NY, an invitation for member districts to meet with Heidi Hayes Jacobs to discuss and brainstorm possibilities to create a working relationship focused on the modernization of districts' curricula, assessments and instructional practices, and ways to address the four structures that promote or impede this work - time, space, groupings of students, and groupings of adults.
Specifically, at the February 3 planning session we will:
share compelling needs and initiatives to inform the session designs; consider how to populate each participating district's team;examine and critique Heidi's working draft of session content;determine possible concrete outcomes from this working relationship; and draft potential dates for the sessions to be held during the 2017-18 school year, or even for the late spring of 2017.
