This is the kick-off event for It's Personal, one of the main forums for CEM, covering such questions as:

  • What practical steps can educators take to personalize learning for their students in 2012–13, and how can technology facilitate this?
  • How close are we to being able to realize the dream of personalized, differentiated, passion-based learning for educators and students, and what still has to happen to make this fully real? 

The kick-off will consist of panel and open discussion moderated by Darren Cambridge. Panelists include Barbara Bray, Mimi Ito, Steve Nordmark, and Sylvia Martinez (with potentially 1-2 more panelists to be added).
