Self-directed, Personalized Professional Development
Metiri Group today released Learning Revolution, a new personalized, online, professional learning platform for educators. While many educator professional learning opportunities are available, most use a one-size-fits-all model where all learners receive the same information in the same way over the same time period. Based on the research on how people learn, Learning Revolution provides personalized, self-directed professional learning. By leveraging multimodal, digital materials, Learning Revolution provides any-pace learning tailored to an individual’s learning needs. Funded in part by a National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research Grant, Learning Revolution fills a gap in the professional learning market by providing educators the opportunity to self-select resources, materials, and presentation formats to suit their own needs.
With a goal of helping all students be college, career, and entrepreneur-ready, educators choose among a panoply of Learning Revolution’s resources to learn about selected, malleable, meta-skills of entrepreneurship. Educators can explore instructional strategies and carefully vetted resources to support development of these meta-skills and entrepreneurial-readiness in their students. The platform includes downloadable lesson ideas and activities that educators can use with students tomorrow—or even this afternoon if necessary!
The platform can be used by individuals and small groups of educators in professional learning communities, either face- to-face or online for educators who may not have in-person colleagues available. With the addition of wrap-around services provided by Metiri Group staff members, Learning Revolution is infinitely personalizable for any teacher, administrator, learning community, staff, or district. Educators can view the Learning Revolution starter course set at www.learningrevolution.academy.
