Personalized Learning or Personalized Schooling? - DreamBox Learning

Personalized Learning or Personalized Schooling? - DreamBox Learning | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it
Our experience with this class was very personalized. And it was very personal. In education literature, the terms Personalized Learning and Personalization are being increasingly used and discussed, and disagreements about Personalized Learning and its value to students have resulted in several blog posts and debates in the past month. Audrey Watters links to eight of them and adds her perspective here, and Mike Caulfield furthered the conversation here. I agree with others that we need to define these terms better, and my experience with the hospital birth class is a useful and illustrative reference point....Read more ›

New Research: Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed

New Research: Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

"Teaching students that intelligence can grow and blossom with effort – rather than being a fixed trait they’re just born with – is gaining traction in progressive education circles. And new research from Stanford is helping to build the case that nurturing a “growth mindset” can help many kids understand their true potential."

At first glance, it might seem like the students who attend the private K-12 New Roads School in Santa Monica, California, are simply playing video and computer games all day. But these students are actually taking part in a new experiment in educational innovation. The NewsHour’s April Brown reports on one school’s approach to keep students engaged all day.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 2, 4:49 PM

Yesterday I posted the top choices from the American Association of School LIbrarians (AASL) on the best apps for 2014. Today they listed the top websites in the following categories:

* Media Sharing

* Digital Stories

* Manage & Organize

* Social Networking & Communication

* Content Resources

* Curriculum Collaboration

As you review the websites you will find one or more standards that are addressed by the websites.

Although I know many of the websites, there are some that are new to me that I look forward to exploring. Below are several that I have used and really like, or are ones I have checked out and will be using in the future.

Are you looking for new tools and want ideas on how to use them as well as examples and links to learn more about the tool. Check out Remix-t, a site from the University of Notre Dame, that is chock full of great ideas and resources. Although this site is geared to college teachers the resources and examples will provide you with great ideas and you will be able to modify them for your classroom. You will find in under Content Resources.

Mixed Ink is a new site to me. It allows you to create a group of students who will write together. They may comment and evaluate the submissions and each students' writing will show up in a different color. This looks like  a great site, esp. for schools that are not using Google apps.

There are many more that I will be exploring. Do you have a favorite website? Share them in the comment section and let us know why it is a favorite of yours.

Kristen McDaniel's curator insight, August 4, 8:15 AM

I really enjoyed this article on "do's" and "don'ts" for empowering students in digital literacy techniques.  I think we forget - this is where our students shine. The article points out that today's undergraduates have NEVER known life without the internet.  How do we use that to help our students learn more?

The 7 principles of highly effective innovation culture change programs

The 7 principles of highly effective innovation culture change programs | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

Nothing is more constant than change. Furthermore, the speed of change is accelerating. So for instance, the global knowledge is growing exponentially, disruptive megatrends are shaping the innovation agendas and new approaches for capturing value by innovation  are becoming mainstream. Thus, new realities for innovation management are emerging and firms are forced to change their innovation management ever faster. A large study from 2013 showed that only 1 in 2 major change programs succeed. In this 2-part article series, innovation-3’s Frank Mattes shares his deep experience in designing and implementing innovation culture change initiatives. You will find ideas and inspiration about how your firm can increase the chances for success in changing innovation culture.

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."
