Personalized Learning by Jessica Johnson

Jessica builds on her previous work and focuses on personalized learning.

My Maker’s Kit lesson focused on teaching the scientific method, using repurposed materials, to test if the incline of a ramp affects the car’s speed. My Maker’s Kit, the Makey Makey, allowed students to record an accurate time when the car reached the finish line. This emphasized the importance of collecting accurate data to form a conclusion when using the steps of the scientific method. (If you would like to watch a video recap of my lesson click here.)

For this week’s task I decided to research personalized learning, more specifically how differentiated instruction impacts this idea.
