About personalised learning
In any group of students there will be a range of diverse learning needs. Personalising learning for all students, including those with disability and additional learning needs, should take into these individual differences. Personalised learning and support to meet these diverse needs should be reflected in the quality of the learning experience that is offered to each individual student.
This training has given me better skills in formulating smart goals and strategies, so students can achieve syllabus outcomes.
It provided step by step approach to helping identify student needs, plan lessons, implement adjustments so that all students can access educational outcomes.
