Slow Learning – allowing students to achieve mastery | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
This post on Slow Learning is getting a lot of hits today for some reason http://t.co/zXS3fCxD...

 

Ah....nice post.  "Instead, I’d like Year 9 students to pursue projects where they get to focus on extended reading and writing and are given time to draft and redraft until they have achieved a certain level of mastery of these skills and until they have produced a body of work of which they can be rightly proud."

Personalize Learning Newsletter - Motivation, Engagement, and Voice

Personalize Learning Newsletter - Motivation, Engagement, and Voice | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This has been a very busy fall with many requests for our process to build sustainable personalized learning environments for the Race to the Top - District proposals. On top of that, we are leading webinars, participating in panels, speaking in keynote addresses, doing workshops, creating eCourses, setting up Communities of Practice (CoP), interviewing thought leaders, and important research on motivation, engagement, and voice. This means we continue to create new resources, refine the process, and personalize our services to meet your needs.

 

Roles change for teachers and learners when personalizing learning in all three stages. Moving to Stage One where learners have a voice and choice takes time, a shared vision, and a Community of Practice (CoP) supporting each other. This chart above provides how roles change for teachers and learners in Stage One.

 

The research by Tashalis and Nakkula on Motivation, Engagement, and Student Voice from Students at the Center provides a great rationale for learners who have a voice in how they learn and are more motivated and engaged in the learning process. This is about learners having a stake in their learning. We highly recommend reading this research if you plan to personalize learning for your learners.
