I was part of a panel at the annual conference of Education Writers Association held in Los Angeles, May 16, 2018. The panel included:
April Chou, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative; Heidi Vazquez, Compass School/Highlander Institute; myself, with Jenny Abamu, journalist from EdSurge, moderating the panel.
The moderator asked three questions of all panelists and then specific ones addressed to each panelist. Here are both sets of questions and my answers to each one.
QUESTIONS FOR ALL PANELISTS
How do you define personalized learning?
I do not have a clear-cut definition for several reasons. First, in a nation of decentralized schools of 50 states, over 13,000 school districts, 100,000 schools, and nearly four million teachers there is no Ministry of Education that says what personalized learning is. All definitions depend upon where you sit. Inevitably, then, with this fragmented governance of schools, definitions of any school reform will vary.
