Personalized Learning

Personalized Learning at PCE is learner driven model that balances basic skills, technology,innovation, creativity, problem solving, critical thinking and engagement in order for all students to master content and curriculum.

Personalized Learning at Prairie Crossing enriches the learning capacity of all students based on his/her interests, unique learning styles, and age appropriate abilities. Students are given voice and choice in how they would like to learn and express understanding of concepts. Students and teachers collaborate through inquiry and guided self-reflection to make learning more powerful. Our strong technology program is used as one resource to enhance student learning, but not as a replacement for hands-on, direct teacher instruction. We encourage our students to challenge themselves to explore their own strengths and interests to drive their passion for learning. By working together with their teacher each student will discover his/her own learning style and engage in authentic learning which is relevant and meaningful. 

Prairie Crossing Elementary is excited to introduce a new learning tool for teachers and students, called the Learner Profile. As our school aims to truly personalize learning for each student, it is important to get to know each student and the characteristics that help them to learn best. As such, the Learner Profile is the foundational tool towards personalized learning success by building connections and developing a culture of learning between learners, families, and educators. The Learner Profile helps to allow students to tell their learning story from their perspective while reflecting throughout the year on learning experiences and how they overcome obstacles. 
Your child will go through a thoughtful, educator-created experience to create his/her initial profile that will then be available to parents using SEE SAW. Teachers will support and guide students to discover preferred learning styles, interests and strengths to know themselves better as learners. Student privacy will be respected and sensitive personal information will not be gathered or shared.
