Personalizing Instruction Through the Library
Students today tend to customize their personal digital environments to suit their own interests, abilities, and desires. It is therefore increasingly difficult to engage them in “one size fits all” learning environments. This is just one of many reasons school districts and policymakers strive to address the distinct learning needs, interests, aspirations, or cultural backgrounds of individual students – personalized learning. In this webinar, Michelle Luhtala (a 2015 Library Journal Mover & Shaker) explored how school librarians can enhance their learning communities’ capacity for personalized learning experiences through collaboration, instructional partnership, direct instruction, professional development, and leadership.
