Building Self-Sustainable Personalized Learning Systems (#plearnchat)

There were great conversations in our #plearnchat about Self-Sustainable Personalized Learning Systems This is Trend #3 in the 10 Trends to Personalize Learning in 2015

A Personalized Learning System is a culture shift and a change in process that impacts the entire school community. Moving to learner-centered environments is more than just handing over the keys to the learner so they drive their own learning right away. As more schools build a shared belief system, more districts will need to support the transformation to learner-centered environments. 

So the system is self-sustainable, it will be important to build capacity with your own staff. Just like we want learners to own their learning, we want schools to take ownership for their personalized learning system. Teachers are learners too, so they will need coaching support. Teachers will develop Personal Professional Learning Plans based on learning goals developed with the teacher and coach. Expect to see an increase in Personal Professional Learning Plans with coaching programs where schools use their coaches to support teachers in building self-sustainable Personalized Learning Systems. 

The conversations in #plearnchat focused around the big question that went deep with these questions:
