Personalized Learning has become a buzz word in education. Over the course of two years, the Center on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities at the University of Kansas conducted research on the emergence of personalized learning in blended learning, competency-based environments and its impact on the achievement of all learners. The findings reinforce UDL as a foundational element of personalization and how both are actualized using competency-based learning strategies to improve learning outcomes.

About

The authors combine the principles of Design Thinking and UDL in three prescriptive classroom projects within the realm of the "makerspace" movement, with implications for STEM and STEAM.   Students learn to make a stable product, use tools, consider the needs of another, solve challenges, overcome setbacks and sustain motivation. The projects also teach students to build on the ideas of others, vet sources, generate questions, deeply analyze topics, and think creatively and analytically, goals associated with Common Core State Standards.
