Q: How can I personalise learning for 40 students? A: YOU can’t… but THEY can !

Adventures in LearningSur le blog Educpros de Daniel Evans. Time to remind everyone of the difference between individualisation and personalisation.
  • Individualised learning is basically designed by the teacher/learning professional around the needs of the learner. The instructor customizes the learning experience for the learner, defining an individualised learning path.
  • Personalised learning starts with the learner needs. The learner then plays a key roles in the choice of what is learned and how it is to be learned. The learner is a co-designer.

Personalized Learning Is a Problem of Privilege

Personalized Learning Is a Problem of Privilege
Paul France, EdSurge, 2018/02/06
Yes it's another rant against personalization but there are also some interesting things in this article. First is this: "We often conflate individualization with personalization." According to Paul France, 'individualization' means " to have the assistance of a complex technological algorithm to assign activities to children," which he says is " impersonal and dehumanizing" and " focuses on consumption of educational material instead of interaction with meaningful provocations."
