How can Technology Enable Personalized Learning?

How can Technology Enable Personalized Learning? | Docentes y TIC (Teachers and ICT) | Scoop.it

In a recent article, "Personalising Learning in Teacher Education through the use of Technology", Australian Journal of Teacher Education the authors, Mellita Jones and Karen McLean write about how "teacher educators need to consider how they too can incorporate personalising learning approaches in their courses to ensure graduate teachers are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to implement personalising learning approaches in their own classrooms.

 

Findings indicate that meaningful student learning experiences can be achieved through a personalised approach which also supports the emerging tenets of effective, pedagogical use of ICT for learning. These findings led to a model of Technology for Personalising Learning (TPL) which is presented as a planning framework through which personalising learning with technology can be achieved in higher education."

"Personalising learning incorporates the ideas of effective teaching, learning and assessment, which aligns with deep learning and constructive alignment principles associated with effective teaching in higher education. In the research presented below the integration of ICT is explored through personalising learning and catering for diversity in a teacher education program. In using personalised learning in this way evidence of the impact of this pedagogical approach on the student experience is evaluated in the teacher education context. Teacher education re-focused with a personalised approach could promote a change in pedagogy that sees a move away from skills driven and ‘add on’ approaches to technology in the classroom (Durrant and Green, 2000) toward a culture that enables involvement and achievement for all students through learner autonomy and development of learner capability (NCSL, 2005). This then has the potential for producing teachers equipped with the necessary skills to use technology in their own classrooms to personalise the learning of their own students. It also offers a pathway for creating the deep learning and constructively aligned learning environments that many higher education authors purport as important for effective learning (e.g. Biggs, 2003; Light et al., 2009; Neary, 2002; Ramsden, 2003)."

Learning By Exploring, Organizing and Curating a Body of Information: Curatr

Robin Good: Curatr, an elearning platform built upon the idea of discovery through the curation and sense-making of existing information, has just released an updated version of its platform which you can check out here: http://www.curatr.co.uk/index2.php 

 

Live demo: http://www.curatr.co.uk/index2.php?view=demo 

 

Curatr allows professional trainers, experts, and teachers, as much as students to organize and curate information for the purpose of learning.

 

What I like very much is the Curatr promotional video, which says lots of true things about education and about the way we should carry it out in the future. The next-button-robot approach to information memorization needs to be replaced with a new approach: learning to understand how learners construct knowledge.

 

Curatr is about the construction of the scaffolding that allows people to learn and to find the resources that should help them best learn what they are interested into. 

 

Promising. Insightful. 8/10

The Vision

From the executive summary:


"Personalisation, collaboration and informal learning will be at the core of learning in the future. The increased pace of change will bring new skills and competences to the fore, in particular generic, transversal and cross-cutting skills….


With the evolution of ICT, personalised learning and individual mentoring will become a reality and teachers/trainers will need to be trained to exploit the available resources and tools to support tailor-made learning pathways and experiences which are motivating and engaging, but also efficient, relevant and challenging…"
