Age of Learning: Harlingen CISD

 

Different students have different needs. The more individualized the learning plan, the better for the student in the long run. One big problem: no one knows how to build a personalized learning plan, let alone show that it is working. What is clearer now than ever before, is that some students have needs that the traditional school system does not offer. Thankfully, with technology, learning can be made more individualized than ever before. But how far is education from tailoring curriculums to students’ strengths and weaknesses?

On this episode of Voices of E-Learning, hosts JW Marshall and Leena M. Saleh sit down with Sunil Gunderia, Chief Innovation Officer for Age of Learning, and Carmen Alvarez, Director of Early Childhood at Harlingen CISD, to discuss the necessity of building individuality into a classroom curriculum. The four discuss…

● Why individual learning is a necessity in schools.

● How individual learning has evolved since the onset of Covid-19.

● How to empower teachers through individual learning and create a new generation of schooling.

Sunil Gunderia is a first-generation immigrant. He is a graduate of the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration and a Master’s in Accounting. He also holds an MBA from the University of Southern California. Gunderia has over 25 years of experience working in leadership, advisory, and strategy. He has been with Age of Learning for over nine of those years.

“There’s no average student in a classroom,” said Gunderia.

As a lifelong learner, Carmen Alvarez has been an educator for 38 years in public school education. Her work is motivated by the high illiteracy rate in the United States.

“We don’t teach in silos. Everything should be happening at the same time,” said Alvarez.
