Personalization to help disaffected students: • Assess their own talents and aspirations • Plan a pathway toward their own purpose • Work cooperatively with others on challenging tasks • Maintain a record of their explorations & • Demonstrate their learning against clear standards in a variety of media, All with the close support of Adult Mentors & Guides

  17. What’s happening with personalization? H. Johnston, www.middleweb.com

  18. Pareto's Principle - The 80-20 Rule • The 80/20 Rule means that in anything a few (20 percent) are vital and many(80 percent) are trivial. • e.g. Project Managers know that 20 percent of the work (the first 10 percent and the last 10 percent) consume 80 percent of your time and resources.

  19. What are we saying… • There is not a tremendous amount that needs to be changed… the personalization and two-way communication is what is vital when working with disaffected learners!

  20. We hope you dance!
