Creating and Embracing a Learning Path for Student Success
MetadataShow full item record
Education is evolving greatly in the twenty-first century. The models of education designed in the industrial age are gradually giving way to education built around an information society that operates much differently than a factory. A central theme in this information society is that of personalization. Pedagogical approaches need to change to match the realities of the ever more personalized nature of the information age. As education changes to reflect the trends of the information age, personalization will increase as students are able to identify individualized growth plans in their learning experience. This chapter reviews how pedagogical strategies such as portfolios and rubrics are foundations for building programs that reach deeper levels of personalization in motivating a broad variety of students. The overarching strategy is best conceptualized as each student creating a personal learning path in education of the twenty-first century.
