In these unprecedented times, humanizing digital learning is more important than ever. In Reclaiming Personalized Learning, Paul Emerich France differentiates between humanized and dehumanized personalization, imploring teachers to move away from technology-driven practices that require students to learn through automated programs or hyper-individualized content tracks. The global pandemic has only intensified the need for critical discussions on digital pedagogy and how to restore humanity and equity in a time where many of us feel more disconnected than ever. Over the course of our four meetings, we’ll discuss how to humanize distance learning sessions using the three dimensions of personalization, and develop an action plan for how to humanize your distance learning practices for the future.
