Personalize Learning: Making the Shift to "Our" Classroom

Brian Anton, high school social studies teacher, shares how he had to change so his learners could drive their learning.

Mel A Az's insight:

Brian shares how he transformed his classroom to a learner-centered environment and what happened in the process with his learners. Here is a glimpse of his journey:


"As teachers, it is difficult to let go of control and to let our learners find the best ways for them to achieve content and curriculum goals. To be clear, our role in the classroom needs to change, and I think the trend in education is moving the correct direction--achieving and creating a learner-driven, personalized atmosphere is the key. Providing learners with the tools to succeed should be the goal, and we should focus on allowing them to use those tools in the way that works best individually. Instead of providing the blueprint for learners to achieve a goal, educators should be allowing and guiding them in designing, developing, and implementing their plan for accomplishing it. When this happens, drastic changes take place regarding engagement in our classrooms and ownership of learning appears, leading to a higher level of achievement."

Gust MEES's curator insight, May 14, 9:16 PM

One of the most difficult parts of our jobs as educators is to create a learning environment where our learners are engaged and meet content and curriculum goals. From my experience, the single most important challenge that needs to be addressed to earn engagement in our classrooms is to develop a culture of learner autonomy--allowing and encouraging learners to take control of their own learning. There are many barriers that we, as educators, must work to clear in order to create a strong culture that allows our learners to feel comfortable with working toward a common goal in the way that works best for them.

6 of The Best Journaling Apps for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it
Web technologies have reshaped many key traditional tasks we used to do by pen and paper (e,g note taking). They have also provided us with way more sophisticated options to develop such practices. Today we are touching on journaling as an example of a literate practice that has been revolutionized by the use of digital technologies. Anyone now can easily create a digital journal hosted in the cloud and accessible from anywhere with Internet connection. Unlike traditional journals, digital journals make room for a variety of multimedia materials including images, hyperlinked text, video clips and many more. Journaling can also be done on the go through the use of mobile apps designed specifically to help you capture and record your ideas and thoughts as they occur. In the collection below, we have curated for you some of the best journaling apps you can use on you iOS-operated devices.

FAME 2015 Reflections - Renovated Learning @DianaLRendina | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it
This year I presented a pre-conference workshop on makerspaces with Dottie Smay and Courtney Walker from Shorecrest Prepatory in St. Petersburg, FL.  I’m so glad I got to present alongside them, as they’ve created a fantastic makerspace at their school (post coming eventually) and because they helped to balance out the conversation.  Their school is a private school – Dottie handles the elementary side while Courtney handles the secondary side.  We had a lot of elementary librarians at our workshop, so I was glad to have someone with more direct experience on that end.

The process of creating and publishing videos can be a great way to get students excited about researching, storytelling, and sharing their work with an audience. For teachers who have never facilitated video creation projects in their classrooms, choosing the right style of video and the right tools can be a bit confusing at first. To help bring clarity to the styles and tools, I have a rather simple outline that I use in my video creation workshops. That outline with suggested tools for creating videos in each style is included in the PDF embedded below. You can download the PDF here.

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation envisions an education system where learning transcends the traditional school calendar and setting. They envision a system where learners progress based upon mastery of a skill or topic, rather than time spent in a classroom.

And hey - learners shouldn't be bored in the classroom. Let's reshape our system so that learning is personalized, and learners have a true voice in their education.

A screencast, also known as video screen capture, is a great way for teachers to create and share instructional videos and explanatory step-by-step tutorials with students. regardless of the purposes for which you are creating a screencast, the quality of your video screen captures can sometimes impede the communicative intent of your message. Therefore, knowing what tools to use to create educational screencasts is as important as the content of the screencasts themselves. To this end, we have curated for you this collection of some of the best screen casting tools out there. We have divided them into four major categories: Web tools, Chromebook apps, iPad apps, and Android apps.

8 Ways to Build Creativity In Your Students - Daily Genius #makered | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it
In a time where testing becomes more ubiquitous than ever, and creativity and innovation – though theoretically highly valued in the ‘real world’ – are left behind in our classrooms, it’s time for teachers to look at ways to promote creativity in their students. There are tons of lists out there about what ‘creative people’ do and how you can be more like them, but integrating daily rituals into an already jam-packed classroom schedule probably doesn’t sound very doable to most teachers.

That’s why we like the handy infographic below: While it does ostensibly give you some habits (like meditation) that may help both you and your students in the long run, if you extrapolate on some of the suggestions you’ll find yourself with some incredible guidelines for how you teach and encourage students in your classroom, all of which will push them a little further down the creative pathway.
