Student voice on personalisation

Here's a video made by City College Student Union about personalised learning:

Two things are obvious:

  1. Students don't know the latest educational jargon
  2. Students are generally aware of their individual needs and feel schooling should respond to them

Questions to ask:

  • Are students always aware of what their 'real' needs are?
  • Are the scenarios in which educational institutions respond to student needs sufficiently fleshed out to support detailed policies?
  • Will students see benefits of personalisation even if it means increased workload?
  • What kinds of additional support will students need to navigate the options presented by personalisation?
