Benefits of Personalized Learning

While personalized learning is not new, technology is helping us to make greater strides toward this goal, and we see many wonderful benefits.

  • Classrooms are student-centered and the teacher’s role is as facilitator to guide learning rather than just being gatekeeper or a single source of knowledge.
  • Through personalized learning, students are challenged to think critically and use higher order level skills.
  • Students are more engaged in learning when they are given more opportunities to take control of their learning.
  • Teachers are able to offer immediate feedback so that students can make adjustments to their thinking and improve on their work.
  • With collaboration tools, students and teachers are able to communicate easily both inside and outside of school.
  • Students are exploring more creative ways to solve problems, express their ideas, generate new learning and develop skills to work as part of a team in the classroom and virtually.

These are the skills needed for success in college and careers in the 21st Century and APS is proud to offer students these high-quality learning experiences to prepare our students for their lives beyond high school.
