Gary Walsh's curator insight, July 23, 2014 4:34 AM

Found this to be a useful graph for reflection and I like the concept of a 'Learning Leader'. A lot of intrinsic values and motivators listed i.e. things that are inherently rewarding to pursue, as opposed to a focus on external approval or rewards.

 

Is a Learning Leader therefore somebody who is intrinsically motivated?

What is Connected Learning | Connected Learning

What is Connected Learning | Connected Learning | Adult lifelong learning | Scoop.it

Connected Learning is an educational approach designed for our ever-changing world. It makes learning relevant to all populations, to real life and real work, and to the realities of the digital age, where the demand for learning never stops.

Learners are the focus: Specifically, developing lifelong learners with higher-order skills.We build on the basics: The basics are important, but not enough for youth to thrive in our rapidly-changing world.We connect three critical spheres of learning: academics, a learner’s interests, inspiring mentors and peers.We harness the advances and innovations of our connected age to serve learning: Just as earlier generations tapped the tools of their time to improve learning, we must do the same in the digital age.Making, creating and producing are powerful paths to deeper learning and understanding: Connected learning asks learners to experiment, to be hands-on, and to be active and entrepreneurial in their learning, recognizing that this is what is now needed to be successful in work and in life.

Have a look at the short video about Charles Raben to ssist in building an image of what connected learning looks like. The focus is on the learner as an active global citizen.

Connected Learning: Harnessing the Information Age to Make Learning More Powerful

Connected Learning: Harnessing the Information Age to Make Learning More Powerful | Adult lifelong learning | Scoop.it

This report introduces connected learning, a promising educational approach that uses digital media to engage students’ interests and instill deeper learning skills, such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking. The report lists four elements constituting connected learning’s emphasis on bridging school, popular culture, home, and the community to create an environment in which students engage in and take responsibility for their learning.

This report focuses on school-age learners, but the emphasis on deeper learning skills, such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking is definitely applicable to professional development.
