Pattonville's Vision for Personalized Learning

Students own their learning, unconstrained by time, practice, or structure, to meet their unique learning goals supporting their future success.

What is Personalized Learning?

Personalization refers to instruction paced to the learner's needs, tailored to learning preferences, and adapted to the specific interest of different learners.  In an environment that is fully personalized, the learning objectives and content as well as the method and pace may vary.

Personalized Learning starts with the learner: 

  • The teacher is the guide for the learner on their individual learning journey.

  • Learners have voice and choice in their learning.  

  • Learners become independent learners who set goals, monitor progress, and reflect on learning and assessments of mastery.

Student and teacher discussing class work

 

Every child is beautifully unique. They each have their own strengths, their own curious way of exploring the world - and their own way of learning. Not every child learns at the same rate and in the same way. In order to help each child reach their full potential, we must personalize the learning to their needs and empower each child to take charge of their journey.
