Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference?

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference? | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In this age of abundance of information, shifting classroom pedagogy isn't nearly enough to make learning in school more relevant and authentic for the learner. Self-directed learning (andragogy), and self-determined learning (heutagogy) are the ideals necessary in making students "future ready" to live and learn in a web connected world.


While original research applied these concepts to mature learners, it has become apparent that even young children have an abundant capacity for recognizing and directing their own learning. Anyone who has observed toddlers learning how to walk and talk understand the motivation and skill development that quickly develops during these processes.


Considered by some to be on a learning continuum, self-directed learning and self-determined learning have at least one distinct difference. What is this difference, and why should educators care? - See more at: http://rtschuetz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/self-directed-vs-self-determined.html?spref=tw#sthash.oSVChVeN.dpuf

Dorote Lucci's curator insight, February 3, 12:56 PM

Great insights- this can be applied to other fields as well such as learning techniques to modulate stress and anxiety

Shafeeq Husain's curator insight, February 3, 8:59 PM

Since "upwards of ninety percent of our learning will occur outside formal educational settings" (Jennings, 2010), in the age of abundance of information, students should be motivated to reflect on how they are learning. That is what is self-directed learning

  Re: Contact with School System Employees and Presence on School Property

Dear Ms. Cook:

     As you are very aware, I represent the Wilson County Schools. This letter is intended to provide you notice that you are no longer to communicate with school employees or set foot on the campus or property of the Wilson County Schools for any purpose whatsoever.

 

  Due to your harassing nature of communications with school employees, and your propensity to file unfounded complaints against school system employees, you are not to contact any school system employees or be present on the Wilson County Schools' property.  All communications regarding your pending due process petition, or otherwise involving any of your children, will be directed to, and received from, myself as the attorney for the Wilson County Schools. If you contact school system employees, they will not respond. If you disregard this letter and are present on school system property , you will be subject to criminal prosecution under the North Carolina criminal trespass laws (N.C. Gen. Stat. Ch. 14, Art. 22B). 


There are no circumstances under which school officials should have to fear baseless allegations or for their own safety, particularly from a parent with no children in the school system, while they are trying to go about their normal duties. There are significant potential consequences if you fail to regard this notice with the seriousness with which it is intended.


  The school system regrets that this action is necessary but adamantly believes it to be so, based on your conduct.


Ms. Dorothy Cook

This was sent as the result of the City of Wilson,NC Police Department Intake Officer S. Moore reviewing the evidence presented which included a portion of the"Due Process Petition  " required Court Case procedure  Resolution Meeting which took place 2.18/2013 Docket Number 13-EDC-07545 but changed by Wilson County Schools Attorney Rachel Hitch per said court documents to Docket Number 13-EDC-07547 allowed by NC OAH without proper procedures being filed. Officer S, Moore filed Police Report stating Dorothy Cook, Prose rep was" Assaulted" by Wilson County School Exceptional Children Director during the NC OAH required Court procedure.  There also was a complaint filed with the Wilson County Schools Board also. As well as with the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearing as the case was a Special Education Contested Case filed Prose because of the indigent financial economic status of the family which as a result there was no financial means of paying for an attorney and all the "free" legal aid assistance including some neighboring area law schools that sometimes take cases of their interest had no available assistance and or such organizations as ECAC had limited intended issues they were assisting with and some was just simply not in the family jurisdiction to help. As the damages and harm done to Dorothy Cook by WCS Officials during and in direct relations with said NC OAH Special Education Contested Court Case 13-EDC-07545 was the reason that the presiding Judge Augustus Elkins allowed Prose Rep. Dorothy Cook to withdraw her case 13-EDC-07545 without prejudice as due to the severity of harm and damages done she could not continue with said case. As WCS attorney February 18,2013 dated letter and its effects did have and continue to have extreme negative effects even to the added point that the school aged children of Dorothy Cook is denied and deprived of their Human RIGHT to enroll and attend Wilson County Public School  a NC Public School  for several years continually as the results of the harm and damage done to their parent during and directly associated with said case and Wilson County Schools Officials she can no longer home her children and has given Wilson County Schools attorney and many others but non were or are Wilson County Schools Employees notice of such and they know as special needs children that education should be consistent but they are killing these children by educational neglect as NC Public Schools are not held accountable by NC Attendance Compulsory Law as the criminals they are and the NC BODY OF GOVERNMENT CONTINUES TO ALLOW IT TO BE DONE but in the history of North Carolina their has never been a "WHITE" child(ren) and or their parent denied and deprived and education and made to receive no education at all that was school aged qualified , special needs qualified and a NC District Court Judge has stated per his findings in a separate but related court case that the parent had met all that is required by her per NC law for the child(ren) to be enrolled and attending NC Public Schools the LEA which the parent and her school age children reside in and has mad and continue to make requests for her children to be enrolled and attend Wilson County Public Schools to Rachel Hitch only per her February 18,2013 DATED LETTER OF REPRISAL  as written in part above but no such instruction has been provided and as a result even the more harm and damages occur daily as their determination to learn is destroyed as when hope is removed when no education at ALL continues and their hearts breaks they cry both inside and out and not even the Courts per Wilson ,NC District Attorney Office states has any jurisdiction to criminally prosecute the Wilson County Public Schools Officials as there is no law on the Book to prosecute them criminally by but there is for parents, guardians and students that apply by usage of NC Compulsory Attendance Law but again NC Public Schools Officials such as Wilson County Schools does not apply at all. As parent made contact with the Wilson County Department of Social Services Child Protective Services for help with getting child(ren) in school it was stated she was not unfit parent therefore their is nothing they can do as they have no jurisdiction over or in the Wilson County Schools System themselves. Parent contacted Juvenile Delinquency Department Wilson,NC , Mr. Mike Walston in regards to the children possibility of having charges filed against them well 1 child at that time as she still is a minor in elementary school grade but Mr. Mike Walston said It appears she was not allowed to attend school which makes the situation much different its not that she is not willing or trying to attend school so he didn't there would be any reason for charges against her as she is now 12 years old and her highest grade graduated is the 3th grade and 2014-2015 is the 3rd nc public school year she is being denied and deprived her right to attend nc public schools for complete nc public school yea at a time!   I ASK IS IT A CRIME OR NOT ?   THIS IS OPEN LETTER NC HAS BEEN ASKED TO CHANGE THE NC COMPULSORY ATTENDANCE LAW TO INCLUDE THE NCPUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS AS THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN TO ANY OTHER PARENT AND CHILDREN WITH A  CRIMINAL MEANS OF EQUAL PROSECUTION BEING AVAILABLE AS IT IS A CRIME THAT IS ONLY NOW IN NC PROSECUTIABLE CRIMINALLY BY LAW IF A PARENT , GUARDIAN AND OR STUDENT IS ALLEGED AS BEING IN VIOLATION OF IT BY NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS AND AS SUCH THE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS ARE ABUSING ITS POWER KNOWING THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED AND USING IT JIM CROW SWING SO LOW TO EDUCATE THE NIGGERS NOT AS NOT DONE IN PAST TIMES TO KEEP AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN FROM BEING EDUCATED IN THE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS SYSTEM ! BUT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WE ARE NO LONGER MASTERS SLAVES WE REFUSE TO ALLOW THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA TO USE THEIR JIM CROW METHODS TO WHIP OUR CHILDREN BACK TO A TIME WHEN NIGGERS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO LEARN TO READ ONLY THE WHITE CHILDREN WAS SO NOW SEGREGATION INCLUDES WE JUST WANT LET THEM ENROLL OR ATTEND THEY TO POOR AND DISABLED AND WILL DIE OUT AND DEAD CHILDREN DONT NEED AN EDUCATION! NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS STATE SUPERINTENDENT JUNE ST. CLAIR ATKINSON HAS SENT HER BEST WISHES WITH NO EDUCATION  AS SHE TO KNOW THEY ARE RECEIVING NO EDUCATION AT ALL BUT SAY'S ITS NOT THEIR PROBLEM MAYBE SHE IS WAITING FOR THEIR FUNERAL INVITATION TO ENROLL THEN IN SCHOOL BUT AS THEY SAY THEN DEAD CHILDREN WANT NEED AND EDUCATION,NC ITS TIME FOR EDUCATIONAL CHANGE NOT THAT WHICH JINGLE BUT THE MAJOR DOLLARS THAT FOLD!


I SIMPLY SAY PER NC LAW IS IT A CRIME OR NOT?  OPEN LETTER PLEASE COMMENT AND SHARE WITH ALL YOU CAN, YOUR DOING SO IS GREATLY APPRECIATED AND WE ASK GOD TO BLESS YOU AND YOURS ALSO.

Student Evaluations Aren’t Useless. They’re Just Poorly Used.

Student Evaluations Aren’t Useless. They’re Just Poorly Used. | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

If it’s early May, then it must be time to talk about what student evaluations of teaching are worth. In a recent essay in Slate, Rebecca Schuman claims that student evaluations are “useless” in their current form, because they encourage students to punish rigorous teachers with low scores and mean comments (and, all too often, sexist or racist ones). The article has gotten a lot of attention from academics I know, who have shared their own stories of uninformed and upsetting comments.

NetworkED: Technology in Education | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In combination with academic literacies, digital and information literacies represent a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills that ideally should be developed as an integral part of subject specific learning. The challenge at an institutional level is helping academic staff and students achieve this in a manner that is fully integrated and sustainable. As part of the JISC funded Digidol Project (http://digidol.cardiff.ac.uk) at Cardiff University work is being done to create a common framework and methodology to enable professional services staff, academic staff and students to arrive at a shared understanding of what literacies are required and how they can best be realised through meaningful learning and teaching practices.

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
While acknowledging that the whole concept of self-determination – or ‘Google
learning’ as it has been called, pejoratively, in certain circles – is fraught with the potential for missing the point, being distracted into rabbit warrens or just getting bad information, we would like to emphasise that this is only a potential.


===> Any learning theory is only as good as the way in which it is applied and worked through, and we have seen it produce highly successful results where correctly applied, in the right circumstances. <===


Watch this space for chapter and verse, as we will soon be publishing case studies of several recent programmes that feature high levels of learner self-direction.

Learners are changing, learning is changing – and heutagogy can give important clues about rebalancing the burden of responsibilities and permissions in an always-on, networked, instructorless, post-course world.

Chris Carter's comment, July 10, 2014 11:36 AM
Humility makes sense. Socrates knew that he was ignorant, and therefor was ready to learn. If I think that I already know a thing, or do not need to know a thing, then my mind is closed to it. All learning starts from a point of ignorance, and then move to greater approximations of understanding until mastery.
Srimayee Dam's comment, July 10, 2014 11:43 AM
Absolutely! Most are unable to do so, unwilling to learn .. Being ignorant is fine, but lack of humility won't ever help

Bloom's digital taxonomy Wheel and Knowledge Dimension

Bloom's digital taxonomy Wheel and Knowledge Dimension | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This is quite a clever and helpful device to tie together a large number of ideas about Bloom's Taxonomy in the Cognitive Domain. I highly recommend that interested readers visit the website and play with it. It's done quite well (although it would be even better if the few misspellings were attended to). Access it at http://eductechalogy.org/swfapp/blooms/wheel/engage.swf

 

But this gets me up on my soapbox because it highlights quite a significant oversight, in my opinion.

 

When Benjamin Bloom wrote his original work, he spoke of 3 domains, not just one. All 3 were, and are, of roughly equal importance in educating young people. The other 2 are the Affective Domain and the Psychomotor Domain. These correspond roughly to what, in today's parlance, might be called Social and Emotional Learning (Affective) and Mental and Physical Health (Psychomotor). Too much (or too little) emphasis on any one of the domains almost guarantees a lack of balance in childrens' learning and development. We can see this in the pejorative, hurtful names students call their peers when one of the domains assumes an unblanced priority over the others. Cognitive imbalance can lead to students being called eggheads or nerds, Affective imbalance to students being called geeks or loners, and Psychomotor imbalance to students being called dumb jocks or crazies.

 

It seems to me that the standards movement and the high-stakes testing movement have come to represent an educational environment that is seriously out of balance...with far too much emphasis on the Cognitive Domain, and too little on the Affective and Psychomotor. We have too many students who excel in one domain, and too few who are well rounded in two or three, as well as too many who do not reach their potential in any.

 

Furthermore, the emphasis on the separation of the Cognitive from the Affective and Psychomotor, has created structural imbalances in the operation of schools (read allocations of time, financial and material resources, personnel, and intellectual energy) that work to the detriment of our young people and our communities.The drive toward home schooling and charter schools can be viewed as two manifestations of this structural imbalance...increasing numbers of parents view schools (especially public ones) as unsuitable places to send their children and clamor for alternatives that offer a better balance among the 3 domains.

 

This is a great graphic organizeer, but it represents only an exaggeratedly large part of a much more important whole. -JL

Education Leadership: Will Richardson at TEDxMelbourne

video published Sept. 2, 2012

 

"Will Richardson has spent the past decade thinking and writing about how emerging web technologies can be best used in classrooms and schools. Called 'a trendsetter in education' by The New York Times, Will is author of the bestselling book Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms, and has spoken to tens of thousands of educators in more than a dozen countries about the value of online learning networks.

 

":Last month, in the middle of a cold Melbourne winter, we hosted a free event in the State Library of Victoria's Experimedia room -- a distinctive space where 19th-century grandeur meets 21st-century digital technology in a spacious bluestone-walled courtyard. Around 250 educators came together to explore the theme of Education Leadership.

 

"The attendees were encouraged to start thinking about how they can work together rather than in isolation within their own classrooms. The event focused on the changing nature of education and how technology can shape the future of learning which each of the speakers speaking passionately about their areas of expertise."
