The State of RI Office of Innovation will be setting up a “question board” with 2 or 3 prominently written queries about personalized learning for RI students. For example: What’s most important to you in a school? and When you hear “personalized learning,” what comes to mind?
The idea is that adults, specifically parents, will contribute a brief verbal response (approximately the length of a social media “tweet”). All responses would be completely anonymous.
Through this data collection, we hope to start collating information around:
What families know about PL and how they feel about this new educational model.
How we can best inform families about current innovations in teaching and learning.
What role families play in co-creating the social understanding of these new models of learning – and what role could they play.
This data could eventually inform pilot opportunities to test parent engagement strategies, PL messaging, and impact in schools.
