improved quantity and most definitely quality of work produced are often sacrificed by requirements of "seats in butts" for hours, similar to what the new CEO for Yahoo has just declared - in a surprising move. Although she moved from Google, so it's not entirely surprising. Google can be a high-stress environment, tho it is successful, it can churn and burn its employees.

Teacher roles change when learning is personalized for and by the learners. Learning starts with the learners.

Stephen Gwilliam's curator insight, January 8, 2013 1:11 PM

When you create an environment where learning is personal for each learner, your role as a teacher changes.

 

So what does personalized learning really mean?

 

Personalized learning means it starts with learners having a voice and choice in how they learn. They create their Personal Learner Profile using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) lens determining how they learn best indicating their strengths, challenges, aspirations, interests, and talents.

 

It is not about teaching subjects, curriculum, or standards. It is about learners learning how to learn -- how to think for themselves -- to problem solve. The teachers we talk to who are letting go and encouraging learner voice and choice have changed their learning environment and role as teacher. They see and share how learners are taking responsibilities and ownership for their learning. These teachers are finding that they will never go back to traditional teaching methods.
