S2E8 Personalized Learning Academy at New Rockford-Sheyenne
February 5, 2019•10 min
This weeks podcast is with Lynnae Liese—the Personalized Learning Coordinator at New Rockford-Sheyenne.
The school recently started a Personalized Learning Academy—empowering students and giving them voice and choice in their learning. Lies says its an opt-in program where students choose three or four courses they want to study. An instructor is there one period of the day acting as a coach—allowing the students to take on their own learning choosing what they want to learn and when they want to learn. Lies says collaboration is a huge part of the learning environment.
Liese will talk about how and why the program began and offer advice for other districts who may want to look into a similar program.
