UKEdMag: Checklists Make Personal Learning Possible by @klundstromatvrg

When you want to move from class-based teaching to personalised learning, there are phases. Maybe you start with station rotation? Maybe you work with digital recall and reflection tasks for some students while you have direct instruction with others. Want to take the next step?

Hello, checklists … to engage and empower real student self-directed learning, start building checklists. You can use hyperdocs or a regular doc. You can you use bullet points or a slideshow. What’s important is to be specific with learning outcomes and indicators that are observable along the way. Want to really reach every kid? We need to use good instructional design to offer students choice in path, pace and place.

A good checklist can help students visualise these choices. And, free you up to be more engaged in one-to-one coaching and instructional feedback.
