SMI Personalized Learning


Pasadena ISD is transforming classrooms by implementing a personalized learning model in grades 4-11. The Connect Personalized learning model puts each student at the center of their own learning. Through a digital learning platform teachers are empowered to customize instruction to meet their students' individual needs and interests. Students are empowered to become self-directed learners and develop the habits, mindsets and behaviors that lead to academic and personal success.


Connect is self-directed learning through the teaching of successful habits. We value teaching students how to learn more than what to learn by focusing 70% of our efforts on skills that the brain uses to think, read, learn, remember, reason, and pay attention.
