Personalized Learning Plan
Right now, I’m not teaching students, but we are teaching teachers, so I’m going to focus on how we can personalize professional learning for our teachers during the 2022-2023 school year.
PL Standards: Consider your school context and those instructional elements that you have control over (e.g., curriculum, pacing, activities, assessments, strategies, etc.). Choose standards that you can immediately implement in the next academic year.
(i) support learners in identifying and advocating for their preferred modalities, talents, and interests when co-planning experiences that support mastery;
(ii) create a flexible or innovative learning environment that supports learner agency; and
Standard 5 - Authentic and Adaptive Assessment: The candidate co-plans with the learner to collect evidence of mastery using varied and data-rich performances that are on-going, authentic, flexible, and relevant. The candidate will:
(i) provide opportunity for learners to seek or select content from a curated menu of educational resources that address the competencies;
(ii) employ engaging pedagogies and research-based best practices of instructional design to curate, mine, create, and organize high impact educational resources and make them accessible to learners;
(i) co-plan and co-design with the learner a challenging learning pathway towards mastery while considering the interdependencies within and across content(s);
(ii) use data of previously assessed competencies to coach and co-plan current and future learning paths; and
(iii) facilitate and coach the learner towards independence in mastering the content
(i) coach learners to effectively collaborate in all interactions (group work, instructional conversations, sharing ideas, critical feedback, roles, peer feedback, etc.);
(ii) collaborate using tools and strategies to acquire real-time feedback and data from all stakeholders to inform curriculum design and improvement;
(iii) build relationships with all stakeholders that foster success, and
(iv) commit to timely personal interaction (co-plan, monitor progress, provide feedback, reflect and celebrate, etc.) with all learners.
(ii) keep abreast of innovative strategies and technologies that hold potential to support personalized learning; and
(iii) seek and create opportunities as a teacher leader, mentor, coach or content expert within the school, district or state to promote personalized learning.
Goals: Identify goals to address the standards of your choice for the next academic year.
Action Steps: Articulate at least four actionable steps that align to the stated goals.
Spring 2022 - Deploy a self-assessment for teachers and combine this data with the data from a personalized learning observation in Fall 2021 to identify areas of growth.
Spring/Summer 2022 - Create a menu of appetizers, entrees, quick bites, and to-go PL offerings. In progress idea:
