1 Personalized Learning Matthew McCrea Science Instructional Lead Teacher G. James Gholson MS Landover, MD Matthew.mccrea@pgcps.org @matt_mccrea

2 Where Ive Gone – So Far 2010-2011: Blended learning model in 7 th grade Algebra class with 1:1 laptops 2011-2012: Project-based learning in 7/8 STEM class with 1:1 laptops

3 Typical Day in Blended Math Class Students come in and check their days assignment on the projector Depending on their progress up to that point, students are assigned to an instructional modality Assignments for the day are fluid depending on student needs

4 Stacys Day in Mr. McCreas Class Stacy starts out the class assigned to a laptop and picks up where she left off yesterday Noticing her prior lack of progress on a topic, I move her to a small-group instructional setting After the small group work, Mr. McCrea pairs Stacy up with a peer tutor and some manipulatives to help her Mr. McCrea continues to monitor Stacy Later on, she may work on an in-depth real-world project applying those skills

5 Typical Day in 1:1 STEM Class Project-driven class based primarily on student interests Projects are written with student academic levels in mind and are mainly taken from other sources Powered by a Learning Management System (LMS) like Moodle or Edmodo Frequent teacher-student(s) conferences to gauge progress and provide assistance

6 Examples of Projects Design a new school locker that is an improvement on the one youve already got (Discoverdesign.org) Design a Moon Base that can be built with technology well have in the next 5 years (NASA) Build a water rocket that can stay in the air for more than 30 seconds Create an app for an Android phone that at least 5 people in class would use
