Personalised Learning Pedagogies within Contemporary Schools
Personalised learning is emerging as the way forward for global education in the changing environment of 21st century teaching and learning. This involves the transfer of learning focus from teacher directed toward a more individualised approach, one that places learner needs, abilities, motivations, and desires in the forefront. Research suggests that the common in practice themes of a personalised approach are authentic assessment for learning, a flexible curriculum that is learner centred, the involvement of the community in learning, and the use of information communication technology (ICT) to provide multiple resources and learning platforms. The challenges that exist with this approach are the level of teacher buy in, student unfamiliarity with its processes, and lack of Government support and guidance for schools. This review focuses on case studies as well as primary and secondary research, relating to these common themes and challenges and identifies necessary personalised aspects and exemplars for future implementers.
