A key part of the Seek > Sense > Share framework for PKM is to find new ways to explain things, or add value to existing information.

Nigel Coutts: Value the Process "beauty of unfinished work" | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
There is a danger in seeking finished perfection in all that we do.

There is a risk that our students will focus solely on the attributes that define  a finished piece and overlook the importance of the process that leads to it. With a shift in our mindset we might be able to celebrate this process and encourage our students to value the learning that occurs along the way.

This aligns with my feeling about summative evaluation... aka grades.  If you want to terminate the process, grade the product. 


My students create an e-portfolio as they complete classes in our program. Will 'grading' an e-portfolio halt the process?  I certainly hope not.

The maker zeitgeist has evolved far beyond the day when an educator might set objects—say, a box of robotic LEGOs—in a library corner and call it a “maker lab.” Educators are now focusing on how the maker movement can be truly meaningful: it’s not about where making is happening, but about how creating, experimenting, and collaborating impact education. In addition, some high schoolers tinkering their free periods away can discover a passion—sometimes leading to a future educational focus or even scholarship money.

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein proposes an experiential flipped classroom learning model where she believes there a  great opportunity to change the predominant didactic model of education that is especially prevalent in upper elementary through graduate school education.

 

"UDL is a strategy, a process that provides opportunities for all students, not just those with special needs (but I believe all learners have special needs), to be successful learners. This is the same goal for the flipped classroom model designed as an experiential learning cycle.

 

This model has experiential learning at the core of the learning process with the content videos supporting the learning rather than being the core or primary instructional piece. Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience.. Simply put, experiential learning is learning from experience. Experiential learning can be a highly effective educational method[ It engages the learner at a more personal level by addressing the needs and wants of the individual. For experiential learning to be truly effective, it should employ the whole learning wheel, from goal setting, to experimenting and observing, to reviewing, and finally action planning. This complete process allows one to learn new skills, new attitudes or even entirely new ways of thinking. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning)"

 

Thank you Jackie for your insight in creating this model where all learners can experience success!

Great article connecting UDL/brain science and experiential learning. It even integrates the "Three What " reflection method.

This article provides some "brain science" and discusses how the flipped classroom can be applied to the Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
