Patrick tells his story as a cognitive coach in Kentucky where he has planted seeds of personalized learning and has grown a safety net for his Teacher Leaders for them to thrive and grow in a personalized learning environment.


Here is one story that he shares about a special 7th grade teacher, her learners and how the PL seed has grown:

"For Ms. Morris and her learners, the learning taking place in this seventh grade classroom was an amalgamation of learner-centered, curiosity-provoking activities, galvanized in the fires of learner passions, that transcended even the most stubborn traces of teenage apathy. In essence, this Learner-Centered Environment was the maturation, the development of one tiny seed planted in the fall of 2014. The seed of personalized learning… " - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2016/01/growing-personalized-culture-of-learning.html#sthash.CTJGCRlD.dpuf

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, August 24, 2015 2:07 PM

Over the next few months, we will be engaging with the Institute for Personalized Learning in a series of joint posts on Learner Agency. Learner agency often gets left out of conversations on education transformation and even conversations about personalized learning. Yet it is a critical component in any attempt to personalize the learning experience with learners.

To introduce our readers to the Institute, we would like to share a link to one of their previous posts, 5 Shifts to Learner Roles in a Personalized Learning Environment. The post examines several ways in which learners and learning play different and expanded roles in an environment where the goal is to prepare learners for a future in which continuous learning and the ability to learn independently are keys to life and career success.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 10, 2013 12:12 PM

Discover how Verona Area School District has begun the journey to create a personalized learning system across the school district. They have a belief system and have described how they will know how every learner is successful. Here they are:

 

> Every learner in VASD has a personalized learning plan that provides a path to discovery and achievement and that plan is reviewed and changed at least annually based on the learner’s needs.

 > Every learner’s parent, guardian or advocate participates directly in the design, implementation, and outcomes of that learner’s personalized learning plans.

 > Every learner meets or exceeds the goals of his or her personalized learning plan every school year.            
> Every VAHS learner graduates. Every VAHS graduate achieves their choice of college and career path, as detailed in their personalized learning plan.

Jackie shares her post and describes 9 different strategies that teachers can use to see each learner and their qualities that make them special. She begins with "LIsten more than talk" and ends with "Overtly show learners you care".


Thank you, Jackie for always inspiring us to be better educators!

Sharon Berman's curator insight, January 19, 5:10 PM

What great ideas, Dr Gerstein reminds us of.  Always having the learner at the centre of our thought processes when designing and developing lessons, means a much more engaging process for all involved.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 3, 2015 10:57 AM

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation envisions an education system where learning transcends the traditional school calendar and setting. They envision a system where learners progress based upon mastery of a skill or topic, rather than time spent in a classroom.

And hey - learners shouldn't be bored in the classroom. Let's reshape our system so that learning is personalized, and learners have a true voice in their education.

Student centered learning

Learning is personalized

Learning is competency based

Learning happens anytime, anywhere

Students take ownership

Tony Guzman's curator insight, April 6, 2015 8:56 AM

This article and video help us start to discuss student-centered learning and how vastly different this is to the current model used in our K-12 public school systems.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 24, 2014 1:45 PM
The learner uses the UDL lens to share their strengths and challenges in learning, their preferences or needs to access, engage and express as well as their aspirations, talents and interests. At that moment when a learner is able to tell their story about how they learn with their teacher, the "partnership in learning" begins between the teacher and the learner. This opens the door for the teacher to have a conversation with the learner about learning goals, skills and strategies that the learner needs to work on to reduce any barriers and maximize learning. The undeniable outcome in using the UDL lens is that the child has been validated as a learner. This is something that rarely occurs today in anyone's education and will have a positive and profound impact for any learner.

The term "student" was defined in the middle ages. It is time to rethink what that implies and redefine the learner.

This is so very true. People develop a real meaningful reason for learning or the learning will have much less staying power. I love what this article points out. Teacher's function best if they provide guidance for the process and monitor success.

Thomas C. Thompson's curator insight, April 26, 2013 2:53 PM

I like the debate this could start in my classroom!

Meri Walker's comment, May 1, 2013 3:40 PM
It's been so long since I could call anyone a "student" with a straight face. I call people participants and learners... because the "student" label means I'm a "teacher" and I'm not...I'm a learner, too.
