How Self-Directed Learning Can Benefit Every Student

How Self-Directed Learning Can Benefit Every Student | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it

Students teaching themselves? Who ever heard of this? Is this even possible? What exactly do we mean by self-directed learning, anyway? I love the following definition from Blake Boles.


What it isn’t:


“isolated, unstructured, or unchallenging learning.”


“classrooms and teachers as the root of all evil.”


What it is:


“purposefully choosing what and how you’ll learn.”


“an understanding and embrace of your personal learning style.”


“all types of learning—including highly structured learning—are valid when you consciously choose them.”

Good stuff! Thanks to Juan Doming.

Victor Ventura's curator insight, August 16, 9:41 AM
My 1st thought was regarding teachers-how they should focus on self-directed learing to refine or explore their skills. Who is in a better position to make decisions about their PD than the teacher herself/himself. The improving teacher is rewarded as well as their students. The best teachers are life long learners and are not governed by school or district expectations or contracts. 
Victor Ventura's curator insight, August 20, 1:14 PM
I am going to see if there are any connections between this article and "Learn Like a Pirate" which I just started reading. There is immense value to self directed learning and hopefully, once ingrained, should be a life long habit.

Teachers are using these technologies to send learners on virtual field trips or getting students to keep track of their steps, cardio, and health with fitness bands. These technologies help engage learners by providing sensory learning and sparking curiosity and imagination. For your next classes, go beyond getting students to read and learn only from worksheets and books. "

Learning Out Loud: Make Online Courses Meaningful and Accessible | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it

Developing critical listening and speaking skills is an essential element of a student's higher-education experience. However, verbally presenting one's ideas and listening to contributions made by student peers are not typical experiences for online students, as most activities in online classes consist of reading and writing. As online course offerings increase, institutions have an obligation to ensure faculty are empowered to teach with tools that enable students to learn out loud. These tools and the content created with them must be accessible to all learners, including those who are hard of hearing and have vision impairments.

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it
Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another.

Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does.

Science content can often by full of jargon, research citations, and odd text features.

Social Studies content can be an interesting mix of itemized information, and traditional paragraphs/imagery.

Literature? Well, that depends on if you mean the flexible form of poetry, the enduring structure of a novel, or emerging digital literature that combines multiple modalities to tell a story. (Inanimate Alice, for example.)

Unpacking the Problem of Unmotivated Online Students

Unpacking the Problem of Unmotivated Online Students | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it

Recently, I received this message from a college professor in response to a blog post I wrote: 


 “I truly believe in the benefits of online learning; but only for those who really want to learn. And unfortunately, those students are few and far between—maybe 5 to 10 percent ... I have found many professors at my university and at conferences agree with this. We need to develop some sort of a methodology whereby taking an online course is seen as a privilege and an opportunity to learn a subject more deeply than in a face-to-face class. Until we do this, online course [sic] will continue to be considered by students as the easy way out—not seen, not heard, just getting by.” 


 I’ve thought deeply about this message for a while and I’d like to unpack my reflections a bit more here. Learning online requires students to be more accountable, and online research shows that self-efficacy impacts student success online. But when we focus on lack of student motivation as “the” problem, we oversimplify a more complex and important issue.

Understanding Universal Design in the Classroom

Understanding Universal Design in the Classroom | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it
Universal design originates in barrier-free design and architectural accessibility. According to the Center for Universal Design, “Universal design is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.” In recent years, this approach that was originally applied to building design has been applied to instructional practices. Universal Design for Instruction targets the best practices of teaching for each student’s learning needs.
