Dianne Peck – Strand : Thinking (S1-SP7)
“Personalising Learning”

Dianne is General Manager, Student Learning Programs Division in the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. In this position she leads the team responsible for supporting schools in their implementation of a range of new curriculum initiatives including the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). This Division develops programs in areas of curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and reporting which are directed at improving the learning outcomes of all students and reducing disparity among groups of learners.

Prior to this position Dianne worked with the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority on the development of the VELS and prior to that she was a secondary teacher for 25 years, her final position being Assistant Principal at Glen Waverley Secondary College in Melbourne.

In 2004, she was included as one of ten educators in The Bulletin magazine’s Smart 100 – an annual list of innovative and creative people spanning all walks of Australian life.
In 2006 she was awarded an Australian Council for Educational Leaders (ACEL) Fellowship.

The term, personalising learning, seems to be everywhere – but exactly what does it mean for teaching, learning and assessment? What does it look like in the classroom and what role might ICT play in making it a reality? In this session we will discuss some varying perspectives and explore some of what I think may be critical components.
