Let me ask you a question. What data do you collect? How much of that data is used to inform teaching and to drive learning? Too often I see beautiful learner profiles that house enormous amounts of data about who the learner is and who the learner wants to become, but that data is not[…]
How are you doing with the goals that your students set at the beginning of the school year? Are they completed and are your students are working on new ones? Are they still in progress and your students are faithfully plugging away to reach them? Or are they simply posted on the wall, lingering there[…]
The leaves have fallen, the holiday drinks are out in our favorite coffee shops and joyful carols are playing in all of the stores. It is really a wonderful time of year. At least that is the way it should be, but according to charts like the one below, this time of year is actually[…]

In personalized learning classrooms, students are setting goals that include how they will leverage their skill strengths and how they will work on growing the[…]

Couple this expectation of instant gratification to the high pressure demands of rapid improvement and you end up with a disastrous plan for systematic implementation and growth that likely will not stick. There are[…]
How do you engage students to understand their learning style preferences and advocate for it to drive their learning? I find the discussions around learning styles fascinating. It doesn’t take a lot of searching to find conflicting information on whether learning styles exist and the role they play in education and learning. One thing that we can all[…]
There’s no doubt that “one-size-fits-all” doesn’t really exist in hats, gloves or learning – so how does “one-size-fits-most” exist in preparing for organizational transformation? For a very long time we have been applying a “one-size-fits-all” l or “one-size-fits-most” approach to student learning. Thank goodness we have moved away from this model where we wait for students[…]
