Personalized Learning Strategy:

Use Tech Tools to Personalize Instruction

NOTE: This strategy is part of the self-paced Customize the Learning Experience Course

Provide personalized instruction that meets each student where they are and gives you insight into how the lesson is going. When tech tools are leveraged to provide learning materials for students to work through at their own pace, the educator has time for teacher-student collaboration and 1:1/small group support. Strategies include flipping the classroom, making the live lesson interactive, or leveraging adaptive or AI tools to ensure the content is tailored to each students’ needs.
