"Personalized Learning" involves customizing the learning environment or curriculum to the specific needs of each student. Every student learns at their own pace and has a unique learning style, which makes the traditional "one size fits all" a detriment to students. Personalized learning is student centered and can be implemented in a variety of ways with a variety of tools.
Defined STEM is a resource that allows teachers to customize lessons and rubrics in order to best fit the needs and interests of their students. Defined STEM provides a way for teachers to personalize their curriculums through performance and literary tasks. One of the core values of Defined STEM is to bring relevancy in the classroom by allowing students to apply their real world personal skills and knowledge.
