Personalized Learning with Scott Johns Transformative Principal 167

Scott Johns is a former high school CTE teacher, and now works for Education Elements, former educators and administrators who are passionate about education.

  • What education elements does.

  • Personalized learning - what is it?

  • Core Four

  • Targeted Instruction - break down whole group instruction into smaller groups of students. Dynamic and purposeful groups of students.

  • After 7–8 students in a group, results taper off.

  • Challenges of targeted instruction.

  • Presence of small groups does not necessarily equal targeted instruction.

  • Data Driven Decisions - Data should inform instruction in the classroom.

  • Allow teachers AND students to reflect on and work with the data.

  • The problem with the question, “Why did you give me this grade?”

  • Tight feedback loops.

  • Standards-based grading. Can help with the process, but not the only way to do it.
