We need, first, to take charge of our own learning, and next, help others take charge of their own learning. We need to move beyond the idea that an education is something that is provided for us, and toward the idea that an education is something that we create for ourselves. (Downes, 2010)
Note on spelling: I have interchanged Australian and US spellings throughout this post.
Personalized learning is an approach whereby students are supported to individualize their learning experiences to address ‘specific learning needs, interests, aspirations or cultural backgrounds’ (Abbot, 2014b). Personalized learning is related to a range of concepts including individualized learning, customized learning, differentiated instruction, inclusive teaching, adaptive learning and programmed instruction. Connected learning is underpinned by personalized learning as it is strongly student-driven and based on the interests of the learner (EDUCAUSE, 2013; Ito et al., 2014).
