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.
