Pair-a-Dimes 14 – Kathleen McClaskey

Description: “Let learners construct the learning… and they will wow you every time.” Kathleen was coding with young learners in the 1980’s, and her passion for education continues to inspire. She has a goal to impact 1,000,000 learners and I believe this is within her reach! Her expertise in how to personalize learning shines through in this conversation.

Connections to Kathleen McClaskey & Barbara Bray’s ‘Personalize Learning: Transforming learning for all learners‘ website:

My praise for: How to Personalize Learning: A Practical Guide for Getting Started and Going Deeper

How to Personalize Learning is a valuable guide for educators at all levels of knowledge around personalizing learning, PBL, and UDL. A new teacher can use it like a how-to manual to go step-by-step through the book, promoting learner voice and choice while developing engaging lessons and projects. These steps help teachers create activities in their lessons or projects that focus on both empowering learners in their learning, and strategies that focus on the end-goal of what needs to be accomplished. Most teachers can pull key components and activities out and use this book to enrich what they are already doing to meaningfully engage learners. Seasoned, ‘master’ teachers will benefit from the usable tables and ‘Conversation Starters’ which can act as cues to remind every teacher that they are learners first, that best practice is still practice, and that our practice can always be improved.”
