Our 2nd community focus group meeting focused on Personalized Learning – what it is, how we, at VHS define it, and what we’re doing to implement it in the classroom.
We followed the typical focus group format, starting with a recap of what we’ve been up to since the last meeting, as well as a quick glimpse of what we’re currently working on. Then we did what we’re calling a ‘deep dive’ into a topic – Personalized Learning, in this case – by watching 3 VHS teachers present how they’re personalizing their classrooms for students. Finally, we engaged in a hands-on activity where audience members had the opportunity to experience what personalized learning feels like by working collaboratively to design their ideal innovative/flexible learning spaces.
Naturally, along the way we got feedback from the group and will continue to use this feedback to refine and improve the work we’re doing as we build for next year and beyond.
