Falling in love with an idea?

What do you do when you fall in love with an idea?

  • Do you share it with others or do you remain silent?
  • Do you doodle and obsess over the possibilities of the idea?
  • Do you listen to the small voice that tells you it can’t or won’t happen?


                         “Falling in love is like jumping off a really tall building.  

                          Your brain tells you it is not a good idea, but your heart

                          tells  you, you can fly.”                          – Author Unknown 


If I am being honest, I should answer “yes” to all of the above questions.  The idea that I have fallen in love with is referred to as MCL – Mass Customized Learning.  It is the idea that schools can provide a rich, personalized learning experience that capitalizes on student strengths and interests, while providing a huge dose of choice within each learning experience.

I love this idea for so many reasons.  Below are just a few:

  1. MCL is totally learner-centered and learner-controlled.
  2. MCL lifts up teachers to be true professionals.
  3. MCL allows flexibility – both for learner outcomes and learner experiences!

Have I caught your interest about MCL?  I hope so.  Check this out to learn more!
