Personalized Learning and Differentiated Instruction as a "trend"

Personalized Learning and Differentiated Instruction as a "trend"

The ASCD named their top five educational trends for 2011- including 21st century learning as the top trend, and Differentiated Instruction as number 2. While on one hand, I look at anything branded a "trend" with suspicion, I think we all understand that personalized learning and differentiated instruction is simply great teaching. The "push" and the "trend" aspect of it is to make it more easily understood and implemented for teachers and students alike. What's your take on anything being named a "trend" or Buzz word in education? Does it make it more or less worthy of notice and attention? How can we help make personalized learning a reality versus another "fad" or Pet Rock in education?
