Student Choice Over Path, Place, and Modalities

Students choose assignments and learning resources to create a more personalized learning experience


Students choose what they’re learning, when they’re learning, and what they want to focus on each day. Students are encouraged to move through the dashboard in a linear fashion but don’t have to do so. There are often multiple learning resources (~5 per objective) for a specific objective (e.g., visual, text-based, video, and bilingual) and students are able to choose the content that works best for them.
