Personalised education is not about focusing on the uniqueness of the learner or separating learners by gender or level of education, nor is it about counselling learners in non-school hours. It is a more complex term that involves different facets of learning.
Technically, personalised education is education which, in its rationale and practice, is consistent with the personal character of the human being in general and of an individual in particular.
One of the characteristics of personalised education is that it is an educational approach that pays attention to the different aspects of the human being, taking into account all his or her dimensions and focusing the attention of education on the learner. This means that the centre is the pupil and not the subjects, which is the basis of personalised education at Coruña British International School.
It should be noted that personalised education takes into account all the resources (personal and material), tools and methods used in the teaching-learning process. These tools are used so that our students are able to adapt what they learn according to their needs. In a society that is constantly changing and on the move, it is necessary for the learner to be incorporated into it, bringing his or her own personality, dimensions and full potential.
Thus, personalised education is not about focusing on the uniqueness of the learner or separating learners by gender or level of education, nor is it about counselling learners in non-school hours. It is a more complex term that involves different facets of learning.
Importance and advantages of personalised education
The benefits of this methodology are many and varied, including the early identification of the specific needs of individual pupils. It also means that pupils feel much more valued, involved and participate in their education, achieving greater inclusivity and equality in the classroom and an improvement in pupils' performance. These values are the cornerstone of Coruña British International School.
