In Columbia Heights Public Schools we know that every student learns differently and it is our goal to meet the needs of all learners to ensure they reach their full potential. Personalized learning is a shift in teaching and learning focused on meeting that goal. We are using cutting edge technology to support classroom learning and differentiate instruction to engage students, support the core curricular areas and enhance the learning experience. We are providing a 21st century learning environment that offers individualized instruction, ongoing formative assessment, and engaging access to our digital learning platform. Focused on fostering confident learners who design their own future, the personalized learning program uses 1:1 tablets or Chromebooks to provide students and teachers with mobility and flexibility to maximize their learning in and out of the classroom.
