Schools Choose Dell To Personalize Learning And Innovate Student Engagement

Stocks in this article: DELL

Personalized learning approach is gaining momentum as more than 12 school districts in just the past two months chose Dell solutions and services to transform learning and innovate student engagement. Dell also announced today a five-step process to help schools create a pathway to personalize learning -– where students’ needs and interests are guided by teachers to content mastery. The personalized learning framework is built on input from students, teachers and administrators around the world and findings from Dell’s Innovation in Education Think Tanks.

“Personalized learning is more than a buzzword and it’s certainly more than providing students increased access to computers or implementing one-to-one computer programs,” said Jon Phillips, worldwide education director, Dell. “In a personalized approach, students invest in how they learn and how they show their learning through an on-going process of inquiry. Teachers have ready access to an array of personalization tools to meet student needs. And technology combines access to digital content for blended or collaborative learning with access to real-time data that helps teachers intercede when a student is struggling and helps students explore potential areas of interest more deeply.”

Five Steps to Personalize Learning

Dell believes that personalized learning should be teacher-guided so that teachers use their knowledge of each student to individualize curriculum. It should be student-invested where students take advantage of a range of learning resources and tools to develop and apply content mastery. And, it should be technology-enriched to improve access to digital resources and performance data to improve student and teacher interaction and collaboration. Dell’s suggested five-step process to personalize learning includes:

1) establishing a vision for learning;

2) determining the right IT infrastructure;

3) preparing for a transition to student-centered learning;

4) ensuring access to technology at home and school; and

5) reinforcing professional learning.
