I have the fortune to have a principal that has been interested in personalized learning and who toured a school in the Milwaukee area that has been doing it very well. She has inspired me to learn more about personalizing educational experiences and setting academic goals with my students. I jumped right in this spring and relied upon my understanding of “the CAFE” by Boushey and Moser to help manage the process. I also had the opportunity to attend an “Introduction to Personalized Learning” workshop last spring at our local educational agency (CESA 6 in Turtle Lake, WI). I am excited to share what I have learned with my colleagues over the next few days. I am including my SlideShare presentation and accompanying notes as a resource for those interested in learning more about personalized learning as well. I am by no means an expert but I am definitely journeying down the personalized learning path with my students close at hand.
