The concept of personalized learning can be overwhelming for teachers. In today's diverse classrooms, it's can be challenging to accomodate students with IEP's and 504 plans, let alone take on the task of personalizing learning for all students. Yet we all know that students aren't widgets- they are individuals, and they all come to the classroom with strengths, weaknesses, challenges, different background and cultural experiences, let alone different developmental stages and abilities. We know personalized learning can be done, but it requires re-framing what a classroom looks like, and how it functions. What have been your biggest challenges or successes with implementing personalized learning or differentiated instruction in your classroom? What would you like to see discussed here? What do you see as the greatest area of need? We can't wait to hear from you!

I know something like this will take time for me and that I can't do everything my first year. However, I would really like ideas that have worked for other teachers in order to personalize learning for all students especially the student below and above grade level.
