Individualized learning is referred to by Culatta (2016) as “learning experiences in which the pace of learning is adjusted to meet the needs of individual students.” It’s one of the major areas of concentration within personalized learning and requires significant changes to school as we know it, moving from a seat-time model to one focused on true competency.

Sound intimidating? Watch an introduction to individualized learning where Gene Kerns, Ed.D. addresses the following questions:

  • What are the three major components of individualized learning?
  • Why move to a competency model?
  •  How does individualization work within or run counter to current educational policy?
  • Does ESSA reference or even allow for individualization?
  • How might an implementation of individualization best begin?

Gain a clearer understanding of the issues involved and a set of principles to get you moving in the right direction. This recorded session is designed for K-12 building and district administrators as well as educators.
