Personalized Learning Through Creative Activites

I had a wonderful Executive Leadership Coaching experience with Christine Klynen over the last few months. We discussed different opportunities for innovation using Apple technology at my PreK - Grade 4 Elementary School. We discussed the overall mission to see every child learning every day though personalized learning experiences. We talked about what that would look like in terms of student engagement, intentional use of technology, small group instruction, and differentiation. She helped me set an action plan that harnesses the current capacity within the school district and building. The end result was creating an experience for the educators, that allowed them to turn around and create the learning experience for students. Leaders started with the 30 creative activities for kids and the 30 more activities for kids and selected 4 for each grade level. Teachers chose one of the 4 based on the grade level they work with. Teachers reflected on their year using one of these activities at a faculty meeting. What followed was inspiring. Teachers implemented these activities right into their lessons. Many students had their work featured on our daily announcement youtube channel. We are looking forward to continuing this momentum to achieve our mission to see every child learning every day!  #JAMESTOWN

Kate, this is outstanding! By allowing the students (and teachers) to express themselves in so many different ways and giving them choices, we hand the education over to the learners where it should be. I look forward to seeing what your staff and students have in store for us next year.
