How Might We Best Manage the Tension Between Personalisation And Curriculum Coverage?

Day 1 of my Questioning Quest, is a question constantly in my mind this year.

I truly believe the tension between personalisation and curriculum coverage can cause amazing creativity to occur in learning. Our vision of Personalised Learning must also ensure students have the required skills and understandings to succeed as seniors. To do so we are currently developing tools and checks to evaluate student coverage and progress amongst the high level of choice students have in their modules.

Many schools are investigating personalisation as a future focused curriculum or modern learning practice. How do you negotiate this tension?

  1. So cool to see a questioning quest, Steve! Will be great if lots of people answer the questions/make suggestions in the comments section and would be ace if you came back and answered some of them/added your follow-up thoughts yourself, too?
    Looking forward to being made to think (even!) hard(er!)
    My aim is to finish my AtoZs in the holidays!
