American Enterprise Institute Praises Personalized Learning
The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) public policy think tank took a deep dive into the concept of personalized learning driven by individualized instruction in a recently published report. Resident scholars from AEI visited high schools in the Learn4Life network, which focus on helping at-risk students and re-engaging dropouts. The report points out that "relationships are key" in pursuit of true personalized learning. "A central and distinct element of Learn4Life's model is that each student is paired with a single 'supervisor teacher' to serve as an instructor, counselor and mentor from enrollment to graduation." "Learn4Life's model hinges on teachers who approach their job differently from traditional classroom teachers. They must be able to undertake one-on-one academic instruction, manage student schedules, track course completion and know when to direct a student to other resources, from advanced courses to counseling."
