A look at how two teachers interpret personalised learning and use various techniques to give their pupils ownership of lessons, ensuring a high degree of engagement.
Personalisation is sometimes difficult to define. Charlotte Smith, a Year 6 teacher at Victoria Primary School in Leeds, believes it's all about asking yourself not, "what do I want to teach?" but, "what do I want to learn?"
Charlotte and the school's assistant headteacher, John Crawley, put into practice their very clear ideas about personalised learning.
Charlotte runs a series of lessons based on pupils producing a virtual tour of a local football stadium, while John uses a variety of personalisation techniques to teach a lesson about the angles of a triangle.
Both teachers provide practical insight into translating the theory of personalisation into actual lessons. They speak informatively about the way they use group composition and differentiated tasks to introduce a high degree of personalisation into all their teaching.
