Yes, it’s true that writing detailed learner profiles, individual learning plans, differentiated course materials and assessments is very time consuming and sometimes it’s frankly unrealistic to expect it from a classroom teacher. I have seen cases where teachers are teaching different subjects to split classes ( Science and Maths to grade 5 and 6 for example) with in the mix some students at the grade 2 level, a non verbal student at the kindergarten level and a variety of other students who also need personalized learning. So the reality is that they are supposed to come up with differentiated materials, assessments for every single day for and remember the learning style of each of these students on top of their general split classes. Seems still feasible? OK so let’s clarify….it means that they need to have the materials/activities/assessments for a kindergarten class (there is one student at the kindergarten level), another set o for the student at the grade 2 level…+slightly differentiated materials for those students at grade level but with personalized learning plans…and of course they need to teach their grade 5 and 6 class!
Personalized learning education technologies driven by data analytics and artificial intelligence are needed and will be a relief. Some parts of the individual learning plans, for example, can absolutely be left to the technology as it’s often quite repetitive.
