Educational Leadership:Giving Students Ownership of Learning Abstract

Educational Leadership:Giving Students Ownership of Learning Abstract | Allow learners to take charge of their learning | Scoop.it
Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner.
J Floyd's insight:

There are many articles that suggest how to foster the strategy of students taking charge of their own learning. Different topics such as differentiation and student responsibility are highlighted to better assist teachers in implementing such a strategy into the classroom.

Adaptive Learning

Adaptive Learning | Allow learners to take charge of their learning | Scoop.it
When software adapts content to the knowledge level of the learner to create a more personalized learning experience. This is a frequently used buzzword used by many products--but programs "adapt" in different ways.
J Floyd's insight:

In the new 21st century learning, the movement to guiding children into taking charge and monitoring their own learning has heightened greatly. In this article, much information is presented on the idea of adaptive leraning. Many programs are suggested as resources for teachers and students to use. One familiar program is Fast Math. Students solve a certain amount of math facts as quickly as they can. Teachers are able to monitor and guide students into progressing to higher levels. In this case, technology is needed in order to implement adaptive learning in the classroom

Key Concepts for Math Implementation!

Key Concepts for Math Implementation! | Allow learners to take charge of their learning | Scoop.it
J Floyd's insight:

Math implementation has evolved from just learning and rehearsing rote facts in aritmetic. Arithmetic has evolved in which the learning must be authentic and coherent across other threads of math (i.e. geometry). Though the PARCC assessment is only administered to third through eighth grade, the teaching methods suggested in this article guides teachers of all grade levels to lay a fluent and firm foundation in learning about mathematics.

Empower Students: 5 Powerful Strategies - Whole Child Education

Empower Students: 5 Powerful Strategies - Whole Child Education | Allow learners to take charge of their learning | Scoop.it
We call on educators, policymakers, business leaders, families, and community members to work together on a whole child approach to education.
J Floyd's insight:

In this blog post by Celina Brennan, five different strategies are explicitly stated, in order to guide students to take chare of their learning. These strategies help to transform instructional approaches in a way that the teachers still meet the need of the learner yet foster self-learning. I would recommend to read this blog post in order to adapt this 21st century learning strategy.

Daily 5™

Daily 5™ | Allow learners to take charge of their learning | Scoop.it

The Daily 5 is a program that is beginning to be implemented not just for reading and writing, but for math also.

 

J Floyd's insight:

In a first grade classroom, the daily 5 is not just a normal routine for the students, but math daily 5 is regularly practiced as well. Though this program suggest that there be three different categories for math, my mentor (and the grade level) has managed to come up with five different categories. The categories are math and writing, math with technology, math with someone, math by myself, and math and reading. Students have the opportunity to choose one category per 15 minute session. The students can work at their own pace and turn in the work when they have completed it.

 

If implemented and consistently monitored, students can benefit greatly. Students can receive feedback in their math journals for not only writing conventions but math content. Students have the liberty to show, label, and describe their own strategies of math in any content area. I would recommend this program to every teacher in order to guide students to take charge of their learning.
