Chris Willig, President of McGraw-Hill Education PreK-12 and Former Governor Bob Wise, President of the Alliance for Excellent Education discuss how personalized learning creates opportunities for students.
Y-you mention something that uh touched on something that I think is a cre- uh, very important um objective of the future ready initiative and that is personalized learning. And one of the reasons of planning, the the having districts actually go through a planning process, is moving to offer personalized learning for all students. M, the alliance of excellent education is has been very committed to personalized learning so students and you just mentioned this as well, students and you just mentioned this as well, students have more control over their own education, they have the instructional opportunities and resources that better let them master their academic material and this u- we believe improves education across the nation. So, I in your view how important is it that this country moves to a [personalized learning system in our schools and what does it take?
Well, I’ll start with the first part of that question, which is how important is it. It’s not just important, it’s’ vital. It’s vital because um, we have been complacent in some ways with some children in our educational ecosystem making it and others not doing so well. And um, in order for us to thrive as an economy and in order to improve the lives of these students, we need to be bringing along all of our children, through the educational process. But some students move at different paces, they have different gifts, they have different learning styles etcetera. And I think what we’re learning about personalized learning is that um, the more we can create that personal trajectory and give them personal responsibility for their own learning path, the more we can drive them forward. It’s more engaging, it’s more efficient, and it’s more effective. Um, some of the things that, so the second part of your question is about how. And um, it’s easy to talk about it, it’s harder to do it and what I mentioned before is some of the work we’re doing around what we’re calling a compound learning object structure, um, for how we develop materials going forward at McGraw-Hill, no longer the two-page spread. I-I don’t wanna talk about the two-page spread. I wanna talk about how we’re driving student outcomes through a personalized experience.
