Personalized

There is no “I” in team, but we believe there should be. The MARIO Framework creates a collaborative team where the learner is at the center. The student-teacher dyad is purposeful in its commitment to empower the individual. We then go further by engaging family members to be a part of this process in a meaningful and ongoing way. Differentiation isn’t enough. MARIO helps deliver a truly personalized learning experience for every student so that they learn to value their own strengths and see their areas for growth as unmet goals. We give power to students and families and provide the scaffolds they need to realize the future they want.

Connections to Universal Design Learning

Measured Universal Design for Learning strategically aligns with the MARIO Framework’s goal of creating successful self-directed, expert learners. Together, UDL and the MARIO Framework provide special education students with practices and scaffolds to build independence and agency, fostering meta-comprehension and meta-cognitive reflection. In both frameworks, regular measurement is utilized to facilitate the growth of the student and the educator. When implemented with a clear connection to personal goals set within a safe space, measurement can increase motivation.
