DESIGNING PERSONALIZED LEARNING EXPERIENCES
In this Gifted 360 Professional Learning Experience, we will investigate the concept of personalized learning and identify a list of specific steps and strategies that you can easily employ to craft engaging experiences for your students.
From there, we will examine ways to invite your students to a learning party by heightening the anticipation and engaging curiosity. Then, we will explore a curated collection of over 100 free content resources that I have selected to stimulate interest in your learners. Next, we dig into multiple ways to deepen the understanding of your learners by debriefing the experience with a set of ready to use Google Slides Templates. Finally, the learning journey continues by encouraging exploration in your learners.
I hope that you will join this ever growing community of educators who are looking for ways to better personalize the learning experience. At the conclusion, you will receive a certificate of completion that is equivalent to six hours of professional learning.
