PD on the Go: Personalized Learning Classroom Tour

Join us every Friday to see one of our favorite short videos to grow and enhance your practice.

Wondering what a classroom driven by personalized instruction looks like? Check out this short classroom tour to see how one teacher used flexible seating, stations, technology tools (including an augmented reality sandbox!), and creative funding to a build a learning space geared towards personalized learning.

What do you think?

  • Have you changed the physical space in your classroom to better accommodate more flexible and personalized learning?
  • How might rearranding your classroom allow students to drive their own learning?
  • How can you take your current lesson plans and adapt them to fit into a personalized learning approach?

Take this from theory to practice

We hope this gives you some good ideas for how you can set up the physical classroom space to help students learn in fun and interesting ways. As you look through these PUWW resources, think about how they might apply to a flexible learning environment: Perspectives from the Field: Integrating Technology into Classroom Instruction, An Abundance of Riches for Lesson Planning,  and Conducting Research - Teach with Tech.  

See you here next week. Share your experiences below.
