Student-Centered Learning - Owning Their Learning

Student-Centered Learning - Owning Their Learning | 21st Century Innovation in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Shelley Wright describes why she has stopped flipping the classroom and how she has moved to student-centered learning. She states: "Most teachers who opt for the flipped classroom strategy are not pursuing a student-centered approach to learning. The traditional model is simply being reversed."

"Learning isn’t simply a matter of passively absorbing new information while watching a lecture on video; new knowledge should be actively constructed. When we shifted to a student-centred classroom, my students took control of their learning, and I quit lecturing. I haven’t lectured in almost two years."

Shelley points out the importance of students owning their learning:

"I want my students to own their learning. It’s been stated that “At its most basic level, the flipped classroom gives students more control over their educations, allowing them to start and stop or rewind important lectures to focus on key points.” To me, this isn’t giving students control over their education, although it may be creating new markets for content-oriented videos and related materials.

In our classroom, we sit down with the curriculum, and students actually see what the outcomes and objectives are. We then have a dialogue about what my students’ learning might look like. They have a choice over what order they are going to work on outcomes, how they are going to learn and reach those outcomes, and how they are going to show me what they have learned.

As my students worked with me to invent our own version of student-centred learning, we realized that the three questions every student in our classroom had to answer were: What are you going to learn? How are you going to learn it? How are you going to show me your learning? This became our mantra — our framework for learning. This is what it means to give students “control over their education.”

Thank you Shelley for your insight and thoughts about student-centered learning!

Students at the Center - Why Student-Centered Learning?

Students at the Center - Why Student-Centered Learning? | 21st Century Innovation in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Students at the Center is creating a knowledge base on student-centered learning through a set of papers developed by researchers in their specific field of learning. Here is an excerpt from "Why Student-Centered Learning?"

"Students at the Center explores the role that student-centered approaches can play to deepen learning and prepare young people to meet the demands and engage the opportunities of the 21st century. The papers that launch this project renew attention to the importance of engaging each student in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and expertise needed for success in college and a career. Student-centered approaches to learning, while recognizing that learning is a social activity, pay particular attention to the importance of customizing education to respond to each student’s needs and interests, making use of new tools for doing so."

"Several teachers now have already stated using the flipped classroom model in their teaching and some are still thinking about how to do it. If you are one of those who are keen on applying this learning/teaching strategy with your students then this resourceful section will provide you with all the materials, tips, ideas, and tools to flip your classroom.

A flipped classroom is a model in which the ordinary teaching activities which are done in class like lecturing or demonstrations are recorded in videos and podcasts for students to access at home. The in-class time is used instead for deeper class discussions, students projects, one-one-one interventions, peer collaboration, and many more."

Excellent list of ideas for things to incorporate into your classroom this year!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 5, 2014 12:22 PM

I am sure there are more than 21 things. One that jumped out for me was greeting each student daily and listening to them.

 

Not everything is digital which the author points out once in #6. A no-tech day is not just nostalgic. It is about being present in ways we cannot be digitally. A key for teachers will be the ways the integrate various media into their teaching.
