21c LEARNing: The Tipping Point to Personal Learning - Part 3

21c LEARNing: The Tipping Point to Personal Learning - Part 3 | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Stevan Kalmon, director of the Council on 21st Century Learning does a great job illustrating the difference between personal learning and personalized learning. He suggests that we are currently in Stage 1 of disruptive innovation as defined by Clayton Christensen in Disrupting Class. Some evidence of this are teaching strategies such as the Flipped Classroom and Blended Learning.

Kalmon posits that a path to personal learning would mean that in stage 2, the learner should replace the school as the primary agent.

"Stage Two could be learner-centric learning, in which the learner replaces the school as the primary agent. Each individual learner -- as a member of a community of learners and guided by coaching, advising, and community models -- both designs what she wants/needs to learn and how she will go about learning it."

Excellent, thought-provoking post that increased my understanding of the difference between personal and personalized learning.

Presenting for Twitter at Conferences : Increase the Tweets!

Why encourage tweeting of your work? There’s been lots of discussion of the value of academic tweeting and open exchange of ideas, which is important philosophically and part of why I tweet a conferences. But there’s also value to you as the presenter–feedback, a chance for extended conversations, and even the potential for finding collaborators, publishers, or new venues to share and grow your ideas.

Blended Learning is Not the Only Way to Personalize Learning

Blended Learning is Not the Only Way to Personalize Learning | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | 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.
