5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

Some wonderful questions that I look forward to answering.

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.

¿Hay diferencia entre "alumno" y "aprendiz" y entre "profesor" y "educador"?

Blended Learning is Not the Only Way to Personalize Learning

Blended Learning is Not the Only Way to Personalize Learning | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Blended learning means offering a combination of face-to-face and online learning opportunities to learners. Blending these learning opportunities can contribute to personalizing learning. However, blended learning is not the only approach that personalizes learning. Personalizing learning starts with the learner. This means that learners have a stake in their learning by taking responsibility for their learning. When they own and drive their learning, they are more motivated to want to learn. In a learning environment that starts with the learner, teacher and learner roles change.

 

The research at the Students at the Center (studentsatthecenter.org) wrote nine reports on student-centered learning. Eric Toshalls, Ed.D., and Michael Nakkula, Ed.D. in one report, wrote the research on “Learning Theory: Motivation, Engagement and Student Voice” that described:

 

The Trifecta of Student Centered Learning

Motivation - Without motivation, there is no push to learn
Engagement - Without engagement, there is no way to learn
Voice - Without voice, there is no authenticity in learning

 

“For students to create a new knowledge, to succeed academically, and to develop into healthy adults, they require each of these experiences.” -Toshalls and Nakkula

 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
Personalized learning as described in the research at Brown is built on the framework of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) that is based upon decades of brain-research and neuroscience of individual differences, human variability and on how we learn. UDL is often thought about how it relates to special education, but to dispel that myth, the UDL principles is about how we understand how every learner learns.

Personalize Learning: Culture Shift: When the Learner Owns the Learning

Personalize Learning: Culture Shift: When the Learner Owns the Learning | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it
It is not about learner-centered instruction; it is about the learner owning their learning.

Alliance for Excellent Education's report on Culture Shift provides facts that point to learner-centered instruction and the use of technology to "guide students toward greater ownership of their learning."

"It is not about instruction or technology. It is about the learner owning and driving their learning." 

 

When the learning starts with the learner, the learner takes responsibility for their learning. The report explains that the learner owns their learning, but does not provide evidence how this happens. The teacher, data, and technology guides the learning in the model provided in the report -- not the learner.

Read the report and you will realize ALL4Ed's focus is on instruction not starting with the learner. Read it carefully!!
