This workshop covers the ideas behind personalized learning, as well as the practical steps that will help you get started. The five-step personalized plan covers everything from goal-setting, to facilitation, and reviewing data. The program is “platform agnostic,” so you can use these five steps with whatever software you use for online learning.
This session focuses on the stages of personalized learning: Plan, Launch, Support, Respond, and Beyond.
Plan: Set up teacher and student accounts, create your personalized learning schedule and student expectations.
Launch: Introduce your students to the concepts behind personalized learning and show them how to make the most of your chosen platform. Students create their personalized learning goals.
Support: Address common challenges students face when adjusting to personalized learning. Create a routine of small group and individual conferences to help students take ownership of their learning.
This workshop is designed for educators shifting to a personalized learning approach, as well as those who are looking to create a more systematic approach for their personalized learning initiatives.
Each participant receives a digital workbook, full of planning materials and student organizers, so you can start making the most of personalized learning the very next day. The 5-Step Personalized Learning plan can be used for students of all ages, in live classrooms or for online learning.

I appreciated the guided discussions on the why’s of grading to provide deeper context going forward into our decision about what style of grading to adopt for the new school year or future years.
Jeff encouraged our staff to think differently about grading and how the system we are currently using does not encourage student engagement.
The experience was informative and thought-provoking. Even if you aren’t open to a grading change, the conversation is valuable and gets you thinking.
I really liked the interactive pieces of sharing our thoughts.
The conversation was very engaging. Very thought-provoking and motivating.
Jeff is a great presenter, and had very good information during the session.
