Gust MEES's curator insight, May 14, 9:16 PM

One of the most difficult parts of our jobs as educators is to create a learning environment where our learners are engaged and meet content and curriculum goals. From my experience, the single most important challenge that needs to be addressed to earn engagement in our classrooms is to develop a culture of learner autonomy--allowing and encouraging learners to take control of their own learning. There are many barriers that we, as educators, must work to clear in order to create a strong culture that allows our learners to feel comfortable with working toward a common goal in the way that works best for them.

Kathleen McClaskey's insight: Brian shares how he transformed his classroom to a learner-centered environment and what happened in the process with his learners. Here is a glimpse of his journey: "As teachers, it is difficult to let go of control and to let our learners find the best ways for them to achieve content and curriculum goals. To be clear, our role in the classroom needs to change, and I think the trend in education is moving the correct direction--achieving and creating a learner-driven, personalized atmosphere is the key. Providing learners with the tools to succeed should be the goal, and we should focus on allowing them to use those tools in the way that works best individually. Instead of providing the blueprint for learners to achieve a goal, educators should be allowing and guiding them in designing, developing, and implementing their plan for accomplishing it. When this happens, drastic changes take place regarding engagement in our classrooms and ownership of learning appears, leading to a higher level of achievement."

Starr Sackstein, author of an upcoming book, "The Power of Questioning" shares her insights in empowering the learner to be the questioner.


"Empowering learners with the control of the questions, puts them in the driver’s seat of their journey and progress. They follow their interests and we trust them to develop more questions as they go, unraveling the possibilities in their learning. This is a great chance for learners and teachers to learn together rather than just in a one sided manner with the teacher in control of everything." - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2016/01/putting-power-of-questions-in-learners.html#sthash.Oj6ARYee.dpuf

El verdadero desafío como educadores es corrernos del rol cómodo,que se basa en el supuesto  de que sabemos todo lo que el alumno necesita. Cuando en realidad debemos preguntar, dialogar en lugar de conjeturar. Si, tratamos con nativos digitales pero nuestra función sigue siendo insustituible, dotar de competencias y destrezas para el ciudadano del siglo XXI. Para ello es menester brindar una atención personalizada a nuestros estudiantes, lo cual requiere una mejor gestión del tiempo de enseñanza, aprender a escuchar.

Envision Schools is a small public charter network in the San Francisco Bay Area whose mission is to prepare learner to get into and graduate from college, and to do this, teachers focus on helping learners develop what they call a “deeper learning” skill set. Learners have to master academic content and skills, collaborate effectively, think critically, reflect on how they learn, and understand how they can have an impact on their own success.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, June 10, 2013 12:16 PM

After reading this blog, Jackie has articulated a new vision for education where she sees that the "best interests of the learner" needs to come first. I could not agree more. She describes Education 3.0 in this way: "Learners as connectors, creators, constructivists."

 

"Education 3.0 is a constructivist, heutagogical approach to teaching and learning.  The teachers, learners, networks, connections, media, resources, tools create a a unique entity that has the potential to meet individual learners’, educators’, and even societal needs.  Education 3.0 recognizes that each educator’s and student’s journey is unique, personalized, and self-determined.

 

The bottom line, though, is not is what is in the best interests of the teacher, the administration, the politicians.  It is what is in the best interests of the learner.  The student should be central to education – not the content, not the tests, not the standards, not what we think students should know and do.  Teachers did not become teachers to teach to the test, to develop practice tests or worksheets, to work with pre-scripted curriculum to meet standards.  Teachers became teachers to teach students, first and foremost.  The learner needs to be central to all teaching endeavors."

 

Thank you Jackie for sharing this perspective with educators, everywhere!

Video-How Youth Learn: A Ned Talk

"If you're a teenage speaker brought in to address a crowd of teachers on the subject of how you and your peers learn best . . . what are you going to say? "I — have no clue," Ned Cephalus nervously says from behind the podium. "I'm just a very average teenage brain"—complete with backpack, zits, and a journal he keeps about school. Yet in this funny and fast-paced "NED talk," Ned knocks out eight powerful conditions of learning that can change everything for students."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, September 22, 2015 11:35 AM

Both of us are advocates for the use of technology to support instruction and to help learners gain independent learning skills. For years, as coaches consulting on technology integration, we observed classrooms where technology sat idle or to present lessons using new tools but the same way they teach: teacher-directed. The current system seems to encourage the use of technology for traditional teacher-directed methods.


The system needs to change from focusing on problems to rethinking the design of teaching and learning around how learners learn best. Personalized learning starts with the learner, not the technology!

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, August 29, 2013 2:10 PM

Learner voice gives learners a chance to share their opinions about something they believe in. There are so many aspects of "school" and "learning" where learners have not been given the opportunity to be active participants. Giving them voice encourages them to participate in their own learning. Some learners, especially those that are concerned about extrinsic factors like grades, may not feel comfortable expressing their own opinions. Because of this concern, teachers have devised multiple ways to give learners their voice anonymously in surveys, group interviews, and in class discussions. Now it is time to look at learner voice and why it matters for all learners.
