Personalised learning: Theory and practice

In this chapter, we trace the ideas about ‘personalised’ learning and consider some of the implications of those ideas for educational practice. We have chosen this approach for three reasons. Personalised education has attracted considerable interest across the world; it has found its way into research frameworks on teaching and learning; and it was influential as an idea in the case study schools that form the bulk of this book. Even more significantly, perhaps, personalised approaches to learning are likely to be particularly salient for students identified as gifted and talented.
