Hi Kenneth Grover! The features in Canvas that supported personalized learning include How do I assign an assignment to an individual student?and Mastery Paths. I hope that gets you started with personalized learning in Canvas!
Thank you. Do you know of K-12 schools that have implemented personalized learning using the Canvas platform?
I do not. I teach at a community college. Hopefully, some other members the community will chime in with their experiences involving k-12 because I am sure many schools accommodate IEP's and other personalized situations through Canvas. All of the technical capability required does exist in the product.
I'm a Personalized Learning Specialist in a K-12 school district and used Canvas in high school classrooms.
To Dallas's ideas, I would add:
Thank you Nicole. I appreciate your ideas and feedback. Wish you could come work in our district!
Thanks Nicole Flynn
This is great information! I work in HE like Dallas Hulsey, but like several of us have talked about in here, learners are learners, and this information will help all sorts of folks regardless of the level they teach at.
Again, thanks for chiming in!
I don't know if this would be helpful or not, but my approach to personalized learning is building a blog network where each student has their own blog, and the blog network is our online classroom; you can see the live stream of the blog network inside my Canvas courses:
You can also see the stream of student projects in there (they build separate websites for their projects).
I've been documenting how you can bring live network feeds like that into Canvas here: network2017
This way, students can see what other students are doing right there inside the Canvas space, and then they can visit each other's blogs, websites, etc. etc.
Thank you for your ideas.
Hi Kenneth, a group of faculty I worked with once created a more personalized developmental class for college-level students using Khan Academy and Canvas. Students would log in to Canvas to get direction on what content in Khan Academy they needed to complete during each topical module and to obtain other supplemental material. This included both videos and problem sets, and the students needed to join the faculty member's class in KA as well so that the instructor could track student activity in Khan Academy. Each module students would take a quiz in Canvas after completing all of their work in Khan Academy. Everyone could move through the course at their own pace, but we did give them deadlines to complete thirds of the course so that students would not try to complete too much late in the term. Data we collected indicated the course went pretty well. We envision moving forward at some point and creating not just a single curriculum thread, but allow students to pick work with a statistics, geometry, or other specialty focus.
It is interesting to see everyone's ideas!
Hi Kenneth Grover,
There is an awesome discussion on Mastery Paths going on over here. I had added some information to the bottom of that thread around adaptive learning frameworks and how it links into Mastery Paths. Growing my understanding of adaptive learning and remediation helped in our implementation of personalised learning at my old institution.
Hope this helps!
