Learner Profiles & Personalized Learning Plans:Reflect students' prior school performance and interests. Personal Learning Plans are co-created by students, their families, and HCS staff to help create learning paths unique to each student.
One key element of personalized learning is ensuring that teachers and students co-create and maintain an up-to-date record that provides a deep understanding of each student’s individual strengths, needs, motivations, progress, and goals to help inform his or her learning. At schools using learner profiles, students might meet individually with their teacher at the beginning of the school year to work together to identify goals for the year ahead. A frequent cycle of follow-up meetings provides opportunities for students to reflect on how they are making progress toward those goals, identify areas needing more attention, and consider whether they need to revise any goals. To facilitate communication about student progress on a regular basis, schools seek to ensure that students, teachers, and parents can access frequently-updated student performance data in a single location.
