edutopia: Personalized PBL: Student-Designed Learning | Learning and Teaching in an Online Environment | Scoop.it
Project-based learning may be the best vehicle for personalized learning as teachers move beyond "course-based" approaches and open the way for student-designed curriculum.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 16, 4:08 PM

Author Andrew Miller poses a what if question that resonates with me:

Moving Past "Course-Based" PBL

Due to the antiquated restraints of the education system, most educators are forced to implement PBL in a "course-based" manner. This means that the project occurs within the traditional discipline structures, where there may be integration, but learning is framed within grades and competencies. In addition, start and stop times, driven by the Carnegie unit, force teachers to start and stop a project for all of their students around the same time. What if PBL wasn't held to antiquated rules of time, space, and discipline constructs? In that ideal situation, students could be engaged in personalized projects.

Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, July 25, 2:08 AM

Student-designed learning? Sounds like heutagogy!

Meryl van der Merwe's curator insight, July 25, 4:38 AM

As a homeschooler I have seen how well this approach works as O have has the flexibility to create projects to suit each individual child oF mIne. Many of the things they dihst aught them skills they have used at college and on the real world AND helped them figure out what they wanted to pursue after high school.

Understanding the Learning Personalities of Successful Online Students (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Learning and Teaching in an Online Environment | Scoop.it

Many factors contribute to the rapid growth in higher education's online course offerings, from economic realities to the need for alternative ways to teach a new media-savvy generation. As online classes reduce and often eliminate face-to-face (F2F) interactions, it's important for instructors to learn new ways of understanding and interacting with their online students to further enhance their success.
