Personalized learning is a set of diverse educational programs, instructional approaches and support systems that aim to align with an individual’s interests, aspirations and learning needs. This type of learning contradicts the “one size fits all” belief. With personalized, or student-centered, learning, an individual’s learning needs are seen as the most important factor in instructional decisions.
Personalized learning refers to the way a students’ needs and interests are determined in order to provide a customized learning experience, which is ultimately thought to be beneficial to the student. This may come in the form of modifying assignment deadlines or redesigning the way that students are grouped for activities.
