What is Personalized Learning?

I feel like the use of Google tools can be a real benefit to help meet individual student needs- I'm interested in considering these tools when I try to think about what the outcome I am wanting.  Personalized learning, to me, relates to how can we meet the INDIVIDUAL needs of the student- the traditional classroom doesn't really

How can we develop activities on the front end so we can better differentiate for student learning?
One of the largest challenges here is with finding the time to create these learning activities, and coming up with systems in place for this to be effective.

Independent Reading Post 5/7

17. Do you have any unanswered questions about the story? Explain. 

"Life is an unanswered question, but let's still believe in the dignity and importance of the question." -Tenesee Williams
Much like life, the book I am presently reading, A Clash of Kings, currently has many questions that remain unanswered.  I think that is the key thing driving me to read this book with such gusto-I MUST KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON!  For starters, I really want to know what has happened to Benjen Stark, the uncle of our main characters.  At the start of the previous book, he went on an expedition north of "The Wall" to investigate some strange things going on.  However, NO ONE knows what has happened to him.
I also want to know who Jon Snow's mother is.  Jon's Father, the Lord of Winterfell, Ned Stark, promised to tell him about the mother he never met; however, he died before he got the opportunity to reveal that to Jon. I have a theory that Jon isn't actually Ned's son at all.  It would explain a lot, after all. I can only hope that my questions will be answered. While I'm waiting I'm sure that I will be able to enjoy the ride.
