Reclaiming Personalized Learning to Restore Equity and Humanity
Technology is at the center of far too many models for personalized learning. Paul France experienced this first-hand when he worked as an educator at a personalized learning start-up in Silicon Valley. When technology is at the center of our models for personalization, learning quickly becomes dehumanized, taking us further away from equity and inclusion in our classrooms. By humanizing personalization, we can restore equity to our classrooms through a human-centered pedagogy that leverages collective, small-group, and individualized practices. In this keynote session, Paul will help participants debunk five myths for personalized learning, explore the differences between humanized and dehumanized personalization, and pave a path to equity through sustainable pedagogy and the restoration of humanity in personalized classrooms.
