Come to this session to hear student and teacher perspectives on how our personalized learning environment is designed and how kids and teachers push one another’s thinking. Flipping the switch to personalized learning required growth of mindsets – from both the team of teachers and students. Building this capacity happened through creating a culture of openness that fosters co-learning. We’ll share how we designed the space, structured customized learning paths, and leveraged student voice and choice to grow our minds, abilities and community. Hear how we approached the design and then we will engage in some Q&A!
