Powerful article...I see it happening already.

Rebecca Renck's curator insight, August 25, 9:43 AM

This is a wake-up call to something we already know.  Our world is changing drastically and this means in ever increasing relation to how we make a living and how our children will make a living in the not so distant future.  There are two points that need addressed now to support these changes and provide the best way to prepare our chidren.  Point one: we need to continue to modify education so that children get not only a basic skill set but also some specialized education as they become closer to the working age. 

Second,and maybe most important to us as parents, is that without the traditional office where most of us learned our work ethics and personal responsibility, along with many social skills as we came of age and entered the workforce, these things will need to be taught at a younger age.  Whether it be at home, school, church or organizations, a concentrated effort and / or instruction on integrity, self confidence, social skills, personal responsibility and time managament are needed.  Value based personal awareness curriculum need to be as important as math and writing skills. Even more important is the need to integrate more specialized skill and creative arts into their lives. Otherwise a young adult entering the workforce will not only have a difficult time being able to integrate socially and responsibly from a home office but will not have a skill set that he can market as a contractor.

Tracey Vickery's curator insight, September 5, 11:21 PM

The pace is faster than we have the ability to adapt.  Accelerated, self-directed learning will become the new norm.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Emerging Campus | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core | Emerging Campus | Scoop.it

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is used to design curriculum, lessons and instruction based on the diversity of the learners in their classroom.

 

How can UDL guide personalize learning to meet the Common Core?

 

When a teacher understands his/her learners through the UDL lens, he/she creates a flexible learning environment and provides opportunities for learner voice and choice. When lessons are designed using the UDL model, the lesson includes goals, methods, materials, tools, and assessments to reach and support the maximum amount of learners in the classroom.

 

Learners can use this model to help them understand how they learn best and what learning path they can take to become an independent expert learner, leveraging their natural abilities in the process. This process helps the learner create their personal learning profile that is understood by both teacher and learner.

 

The importance of this strategy is that both the teacher and the learner understand who the learner is and how they learn best. The learner and the teacher uses the UDL lens to personalize learning. So what does that look like?

 

An example of an 8th Grade unit on the Civil War serves as an example along with two students who can meet a number of CCSS when they choose and use the tools to support their learning.

 

Explore our new website, Personalize Learning (www.personalizelearning.com), to learn more about the research, models and educators who are personalizing learning.

Like other comments on this scoop, I really like this article, especially items #1 and #2.  I really like those options because they are unconventional options that I still think would provide an appropriate level of challenge for the students as well as provide an alternative form of just a simple pencil and paper exam.  I think option #1 is more feasible for elementary school because it would allow students to work on skills that are more age appropriate like consolidation of information and looking for quality source material.
