Personalized Learning Institute at Puget Sound ESD
Each student entering our schools brings a different set of needs and strengths. If we are going to ensure that all our children will be successful, we need to develop schools and classrooms that can adapt to these many complex differences, and provide each child the personalized learning experience they need to thrive.
The Puget Sound Center for Personalized Learning Institute is a workshop series to provide educational leaders the opportunity to explore issues and models for developing and implementing personalized learning initiatives. These programs will connect you with experts and practitioners to help guide you in work-oriented sessions, and the five sessions together will provide a comprehensive experience to move you and your team into improved practice. Registrants will be surveyed ahead of time, and the information we collect will be used to create the most personalized learning opportunity possible.
Topics covered will include:
- Personalized Learning and Culturally Responsive Teaching with Zaretta Hammond, author of the acclaimed book Culturally Responsive Teaching and The Brain. One of the key goals for implementing personalized learning is to close the opportunity gap. Zaretta Hammond will look at how schools can modify their practices to help culturally and linguistically diverse students who have been marginalized in schools build their skill and capacity to do rigorous work. Saturday, January 20, 8:30-3:30 at Puget Sound ESD
- Changing the Way Personalized Learning Happens, with Anthony Kim and Keara Duggan. Before implementing personalized learning, it’s essential to think about the systems that support instruction. Author Anthony Kim from Education Elements will help you rethink the way work gets done in your schools and districts based on the lessons from his new book: The New School Rules: 6 Vital Practices for Thriving and Responsive Schools. Saturday, February 10, 8:30-3:30 at Puget Sound ESD
- Using Blended Learning to Support Personalized Learning. Presenters Kelly Freiheit and Megan Huneck of Education Elements will help you think through how to leverage technology to support personalized learning in your school or district using a human-centered design process from the Stanford d.school. The EE team will share blended learning best practices from their work with 600 schools and districts around the country. Saturday, May 19, 8:30-3:30 at Puget Sound ESD
