Subject: Customized Learning
I am a high school teacher in Iowa, but was trained in Maine and have done a lot of professional development on customized/personalized learning there. It is something that really intrigued me at the time and would now like to implement in my classrooms. My school is not an established customized learning environment, however, and there are not many other resources for me in the area. (If there are resources on the internet I cannot find them!) What I am in search of is advice/suggestions/materials from other teachers who have implemented these programs in their own math classrooms. I am aware of the benefits but just unsure of how to directly begin so all practical responses would be much appreciated. I know that the setup and preplanning is key. Some questions I have are: How much did you require students to do and what guidelines did you put in place and what were your initial conversations about it with students like? For some background: the classroom I want to start with is a general education algebra class with 1-1 laptops. Thank you for my help in making this a success for my students.
