Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise for LEARNING PERSONALIZED

"Everyone talks about personalization as a goal but few people have visualized what it can realistically mean. This book helps us move beyond platitudes toward schooling that really honors learners' right to a personalized education."
—Grant Wiggins,, president, Authentic Education

"This important book helps educators go beyond 'personalized learning' as a buzzword to make it a reality in every classroom. An essential tool for every teacher."
—Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap and Creating Innovators

"What a timely book! Educators are struggling with how to make a jump from the more traditional curriculum to one that fosters innovation, collaboration, and rigorous thinking."
—Bena Kallick, educational consultant; cofounder and director, Institute for Habits of Mind

"In the 21st Century, every student needs to be self-directed and self-managed. That's why the time for 'personalized learning' has finally come."
—Ken Kay, chief executive officer, EdLeader21; founding president, Partnership for 21st Century Skills; co'author, with Valerie Greenhill, of The Leader's Guide to 21st Century Education: 7 Steps for Schools and Districts

"For educators who want to invest in personalized learning to more deeply engage and challenge students, this book offers a balanced overview of the terrain, as well as clear and helpful definitions, structures, and strategies."
—Ron Berger, chief academic officer, Expeditionary Learning

Imagine inquisitive students, invigorated teachers, and schools that not only meet standards but create growth outcomes that put students within reach of their goals. This is the vision of personalized learning—an approach to education founded in collaborative conversations where students are no longer bystanders in their own development. Learning Personalized is a clear guide that explains the what, when, where, and how of personalized education, so you can bring this powerful learning framework to your school.

Format: Paperback
This book, unlike other Personalized Learning books I have read, concentrates on the pedagogical shift to student centered learning. It addresses how technology is only a vehicle in the process but the change really occurs when the teacher makes the shift in the role from lecturer to coach. The book offers practical advice, suggestions and resources including examples as models.

This is the must read book if you are interested in Personalizing Learning. There are many thoughts about this topic out there and the authors do a great job setting the stage for their point of view. After two years of research on our own, our school found this work and it mirrors many ideas we found and we are grateful to the authors for their practical resources and organizational ideas. Our principal is buying this for our entire school. If you only read one book on this topic. THIS is it!

I highly recommend Learning Personalized as an exceedingly useful book for educators wishing to engage individual students in learning. The authors reference and use varied and pertinent sources to illuminate the meaning and effectiveness of personalized student learning. They present tables that are carefully crafted to provide a coherent framework for key ideas and their essential elements. An excellent Personalized Learning Evolution table serves as the primary core reference point for working through how to develop a student-centered education. The authors’ examples and explanations of these deepen understanding of core concepts and provide the reader with rich and relevant models for authentic student learning. The examples follow templates that make sense and can be adopted by teachers readily. These templates are designed for teachers to develop powerful instructional strategies, materials, and tasks/activities/assessments to engage students in learning. From my perspective, Learning Personalized is a major source for educational reform that focuses directly student engagement in productive learning.

The book is bascially a 'how to' for educators; however, I found it resourceful and inspiring. My child attends a school dedicated to personalized mastery learning and I think this is the best resource so far to explain not only how personalized learning works but how it inspires students to be lifelong learners. Excellent book for people - parents and educators - interested in helping public education evolve.

Learning Personalized helps explain what personalized learning really is. Personalized learning is a term used easily but this book gives real units, real examples, and real context for what it looks like, sounds like, and feels like in the classroom. I am so grateful for a resource like this that helps me do what is best for my students. Zmuda explains each piece clearly for me. Just waiting for more like this.
