It’s a new year and it’s time to see what the future may hold. So let’s look at the top educational trends in 2019 and their affects on teachers and students. Two dominant curriculum trends are impacting educational publishing: the movement toward personalized learning and the need for critical thinking lessons.
The Personalized Learning Movement
Personalized learning is affecting how the curriculum is being developed and also how students’ work and learning is being assessed. Since 2012, fifteen states have implemented policies to support personalized learning, ranging from waiving regulations to set up innovation zones. New Hampshire is spearheading implementation of this trend. Across the nation, many districts are using digital online courses and products to implement personalized learning.
