Personalized Learning

Elements of Personalized Learning

Socially Engaged Contributors

Students are active contributors to other’s learning, as well as their own, and contribute positively to family, community, nation, and world.



All components of the learning environment (teacher time, instructional delivery, physical plant, learning resources, assessments, etc.) are adapted to most effectively support student competency.

Learner Profile

Profiles identify strengths, gaps, development areas, interests and aspirations. They are aggregated from all activities of the user, and are a tool for goal setting and advising.

Competency Based Advancement

Learning is continuously evaluated and progress is based on educator input and individual readiness, not on seat time or age cohort.


Learning Plans

Learning plans are constructed in collaboration with learners, peers and educators to provide a set of activities that fit the interests and development needs of every student.
