Teaching students how to learn

Teaching students how to learn | autonomous learning | Scoop.it

It's no secret that students learn best when they self-regulate--set their own academic goals, develop strategies to meet them and reflect on their academic performance.
High-achieving students know what needs to be learned and how to learn it, educational psychology studies increasingly show. But while making those kinds of self-assessments may sound simple--and something most college students could do--many psychology professors find their students aren't self-aware enough to conduct them..

This is reinforcing at a principle level the possibilities for teaching and learning that are becoming reality. A flexible digital curriculum like the Australian Curriculum is certainly a key ingredient.

The Secret of Educational Reform

The Secret of Educational Reform | autonomous learning | Scoop.it
Education reform is impossible.
You can reform particular organizations—a university or a department—but you cannot reform education as a whole. Why? Because education is a spontaneous order.

12 Books About Learning Every Teacher Should Read - TeachThought

12 Books About Learning Every Teacher Should Read - TeachThought | autonomous learning | Scoop.it

"In the age of blogging and social media, is there still room for books? Hopefully.

 

While digital content is handy and accessible, many of the issues we face as educators are deeper than any single post–or series of posts–can adequately address. While RSS skimming and short eBooks are beginning to find favor with busy teachers–and for good reason–pairing that kind of persistent content with longer-duration reads is never a bad idea. Where will you find the time? That’s another post.

 

Or book."

I agree by 100% with this: The alternative is to make achievement the constant, and ===> allow each student the time she or he needs to learn. <===

 

I have given ICT courses for 10 years to adults and seniors where time didn't play any role to achieve the learning and it came out of a success rate of 95 % with team-work included; the BEST played the role of a teacher and helped the others.
