It has been 14 months since we initially published the PDI Chart that has been downloaded tens of thousands of times around the world. We heard from educators from all corners of the planet including Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, England, France, Ukraine, China, India, Canada and the United States where they shared how they are using this chart. We learned that this chart has been helpful in having educators and parents gain an understanding of these differences. We appreciate the stories and the thoughtful feedback that we received.
From this feedback, we realized it was time for the chart to be revised and to get a facelift. The input we received helped us clarify the differences of these three terms.
We added a row below these terms to distinguish that personalization begins with the learner who drives and owns their learning. The other terms are teacher-centered where the teacher provides the instruction, support and assessments for the learners.
