Hello all, 
I'm looking for resources - articles, research papers, case studies, etc. - that can illustrate how personalized learning can positively affect education.
Anyone have anything to share?

Hi David,
If you go to my Scoop.it sites, I have clipped many pieces on Personalized Education.
When you get to the site, use the Filter tab and enter the term(s) you want to search for.

Also, Kathleen McKlaskey runs a Scoop.it site devoted to Personalized Learning at
and Barbara Bray's blog, Rethinking Learning focuses a great deal on Personalized Learning
Yes we had her in to speak as part of the course :) Good stuff!
Last week I passed this info on to a fellow ADE, Lori Roe, who was doing a presentation on Personalized Learning. Part of the info is from a presentation I did at ISTE in 2010.

This is our group project from ADE Institute in Full Sail, 2009.
Guess who got the group going on this topic?
I thought our video was on this Ning. Guess not. Will look for it.

To me Personalized Learningmeans that u make it personal. You chose what, when, where, how & with whom you want to learn”

Remember that this document was from ISTE10 - and then repurposed for a local state tech conference.

And that these were my talking points - not a slide show or web site. I have updated it slightly, removing some stuff that is no longer relevant and updating a few (from ISTE10 to ISTE11).


Personalized Learning - what is it?
Lifelong learning?
Professional Development?

Books - you chose the books you want to read
Magazines - you chose the magazine articles you want to read
TV Shows - you chose the educational shows you want to see
Podcasts - you chose the podcasts (like iPad Today) you want to listen to
People - you chose the people you want to learn from and collaborate with
PLN - Personal Learning Networks
        Different from Professional Learning Communities
You chose who you want to learn from and collaborate with
Different than Listservs - they are more Q&A - more intrusive

The Google Document is at

Are you familiar with the communities in Edmodo?
The communities in Google+
Groups in Google+ ?
These are my next (after Twitter) best PLN resources.

There is a group (not real active) on LinkedIn for Personalized Learning

Noticed I have some of Barbara's stuff bookmarked :-)

Have you seen the video for Animal School? Similar concept for children with disabilities.
