Hello! Next week, between 21st-23rd September 2018, myself, Derek Devine, International Business Development Manager at Edmentum International, and my colleague, Gavin McLean, International Business Development Director, are travelling to Dubai to attend IPSEF Middle East.
There, we’ll be showcasing how our suite of integrated curriculum and assessment solutions can support teachers in helping all of their students succeed, and we hope to meet teachers who attend to show them how we can help them achieve their academic goals too.
Find out more about all our learning solutions and what we’ll be talking about, as well as how we can help your school’s teaching and learning.
Not only this, I’ll also be hosting a workshop there to discuss how technology and data can be used to deliver truly personalized learning. And this is what I’m excited to mention to you.
Here at Edmentum International, our commitment to assessment, instruction and data lays the foundation for how we define and support personalized learning, which is why I’m looking forward to speaking about it more.
During my presentation, I’ll be speaking about:
- how you can use adaptive technology to create an accurate personalized learning path for every student;
- how as teachers you can manage personalized learning in a diverse classroom; and,
- how you can link personalized learning to assessment data
So it’s designed to be a really helpful, informative workshop that provides you with more information on a very significant subject.
For us, it’s important to individualize learning as much as possible. And I know that when I visit schools around the world, personalized learning is very important to teachers, but it also poses a challenge to them in terms of time or resources.
But what is personalized learning? What is the best way to define it?
There are so many interpretations of what it is. But it’s all about putting students first – we’re sure you’ll agree with this! Guided by innovative teaching and supported by tools that pace learning to students’ needs, as well as tailoring instruction to students’ preferences and aligning education to students’ interests, these elements all define personalized learning. However, although that’s my definition, you may be thinking something different.
With individualized learning, differentiated learning and student agency however, we can deliver personalized learning.
So come along and listen to my workshop at IPSEF Middle East if you’re attending – find out more about personalized learning and we can discuss it together – hopefully you’ll learn a lot too! I look forward to seeing you there.
Don’t forget to visit our stand at the Intercontinental Hotel in Festival City, Dubai, if you’re attending IPSEF this year.
