Personalize Learning: The Learner Profile: Get Up Close and Personal Using the UDL Lens

Personalize Learning: The Learner Profile: Get Up Close and Personal Using the UDL Lens | Lyseo.org (ICT in High School) | Scoop.it

Create a Learner Profile using the UDL lens. "Each learner comes to school with strengths and challenges along with a set of interests, talents and aspirations." "Every learner can benefit from creating a Learner Profile. It tells us about a learner that learning styles or an Individual Education Plan (IEP) does not tell us. Here is an example of a learner that may have similar challenges as some of your learners, but we want you to look closely at this learner's strengths along with her interests, talents, passions and aspirations."

As the school year begins, here is a great resource to help you plan for students with differing needs.  McClaskey and Brey's "Personalize Learning" website and materials have been developed based upon years of classroom experience, and they integrate the principles of UDL and of DI into all of their work.  Try  out this rich educational resource.
Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, August 23, 2:27 PM
Personalizing learning is as relevant for adult students as it is for children - perhaps even more so!  McClaskey and Brey have developed materials and approaches that integrate UDL and DI to benefit all learners.

We may graduate from school, but we never stop learning. New jobs, new roles, new relationships: all require the acquisition of new knowledge. To stop learning is to stop improving.

Despite its importance, so many of us develop bad habits and faulty techniques that undermine our ability learn effectively, says Nate Kornell, an associate professor of cognitive psychology at Williams College who studies learning strategies.Below, Kornell outlines three fundamental principles to learn by.

1. Embrace discomfort

2. Stop cramming

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Lyseo.org (ICT in High School) | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.

9 Steps to a Future-Ready Education

9 Steps to a Future-Ready Education | Lyseo.org (ICT in High School) | Scoop.it

Initiatives are about more than just adopting technology.


1. Embrace a powerful vision of student-led learning.

The first step to approaching a future-ready education initiative is to identify and envision your organization’s end goal. In today’s learning environment, it should be students at the center, not the educators. For many learning instructors, this paradigm shift from a traditional teacher-led classroom to a student-centered one can be a challenging transition. While teachers and administrators play a critical role making a classroom future ready, students should be more involved in technology decision-making and deployment. Some schools have elected “technology ambassadors,” students who are trained on new tech and thus empowered to teach their fellow students.

“ Here are some excellent iPad apps to enhance students creativity through digital storytelling. These are among the best apps teachers have been using with their students to create, narrate, and share stories. Using these apps students will be able to tell their own stories using a variety of multimedia materials that include: images, characters, avatars, photos, audio recordings, video clips and many more. The editing and creation functionalities differ from one app to the other but overall, the process is fairly simple and student friendly:”

How Self-Directed Learning Can Benefit Every Student

How Self-Directed Learning Can Benefit Every Student | Lyseo.org (ICT in High School) | 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.”

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.
