Kara long's curator insight, April 17, 2014 10:47 AM

This article is about the program called "The education we want: an advocacy toolkit." It featured real-life stories of youths who have successfully advocated for this program.  YAG youth demonstrate remarkable passion, leadership skills, and eloquence when speaking about the barriers to quality education in their communities and in the world. They are able to understand what it mean to be a "global citizen."

Kristin Blom's comment, April 19, 2014 2:56 PM
I found this article very empowering, specifically for youth. Youth from around the world are coming together to fight for education for all kids around the world. It is very easy to take education for granted in America because it is readily available to us. Those involved in this advocacy are true global citizens because regardless of their age, they are bettering not just their communities, but communities around the world. This article was very interesting to me as well, because I think it would be an amazing experience to teach abroad someday.

This article addresses the need for "global citizenship" education past the 2015. The article addresses the need to move away from traditional testing methods as it is not a true measurement of global citizenship. Traditional measurements may stifle creativity and innovative thinking.

Personalization vs Differentiation vs Individualization

Personalization vs Differentiation vs Individualization | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Here's a chart that explains the differences between personalization, differentiation, and individualization. After some research on these terms, Kathleen McClaskey and I were able to determine the differences between these terms in relationship to teaching and learning.

Thank you for your comment. Kathleen and I are looking for feedback on how educators are using this chart.

I am in Wisconsin and we are part of CESA 1 NxGL. I team teach with 42 kindergarten kids and we are using personalized learning. We are working through the tangles of being able to personalize with kids who are just learning to read, write and compute. It has always been a struggle to be able to differentiate the difference between true personalized learning vs. differentiation and individualization. You have done a beautiful job of creating a chart that makes this clearer for all stakeholders. This chart will be useful for helping colleagues, administration and parents see the true definition of personalized learning and the potential that it holds.

Hello rwteam in WI,

Thank you for your comments on this chart that Barbara and I created. We would be glad to have you share this with your colleagues in WI and elsewhere. We commend you and your teams in CESA 1 NxGL on the hard work that you are doing to make personalized learning a realty for your students.

Be inspired by this Ted Talk by Ramsey who shares the 3 Rules to Spark Learning:

 

1. Curiosity comes first

2. Embrace the mess

3. Practice reflection

 

Sounds like learner--centered to me!l
