I can't help but imagine what our world will be like if we fight for and defend the right of today's children to be who they are, to excel where they are strong and gifted, to acknowledge & foster the gifts they came into this world with.  We've all heard of indigo children, crystal children, etc. - although it is an esoteric thought that these types of children are here on earth at this time for a specific purpose.  Either way, WHY would we not treat them and support them in the ways that suggest we believe the absolute best about them?  We can support them in who they are in ways that our own generations and those before were never supported.  

 

Our world is changing rapidly and it is entirely possible these souls have chosen to incarnate at this time in order to help humankind with the special gifts they came in with.  We must support individualized learning and the direction these children wish to go and excel - in many cases, they know their own hearts, more than most of us do our own . The future we are leaving them isn't particularly stellar. What if they truly are here to change our world and help humanity during "The Great Change/Shift"? How will we know unless we fight for them?... unless we recognize their unusual giftedness and talents and their possibilities to change our rugged world in the ways we have not?

Here's a wonderful example of a secondary school that allows students to take control of their learning = personalizing learning. 

Debra Walker's curator insight, August 20, 3:34 PM

I was fortunate in primary and secondary school.  I had empassioned teachers and administrators, and a family that supported and fostered my curiosity and a healthy respect for learning.  Not all have that fortune.

A Personalized Learning System is a culture shift and a change in process that impacts the entire school community. Moving to learner-centered environments is more than just handing over the keys to the learner so they drive their own learning right away. This process is about developing a self-sustaining Personalized Learning System with your staff. This is about building a human infrastructure based on a train-the-trainer model where lead coaches support site coaches who support your teachers. Teachers become partners in learning with their learners as learners take ownership of their learning. - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2013/09/personalized-learning-system.html#sthash.mk9RGeTD.dpuf

There isn't much text to accompany this graphic, but the graphic does a great job of helping us see the need for creating an ecosystem for personalization: it can't be achieved through a 1:1 relationship between a teacher and a student, let alone through a 1:25 relationship of a teacher in a class with 25 students. It requires a complete reconceptualization of roles and relationships.

We are all learners. The cartoon speaks volumes.

Mickey Gast's curator insight, February 11, 2014 7:48 PM

What personalized learning is and how it can be optimized. Now that learning is available to "the masses", what is preventing "the masses" from taking advantage of learning opportunities?

Don Breedwell's curator insight, March 26, 2014 8:47 PM

I like to see good change and this looks like the right direction. Going to make the changes in vocabulary now.

A public high school actually allowed some students to design their own semester and run it themselves.

This video gives you an inside look at what happens when you give the learner ownership to their learning. The Independent Project was so successful at Monument Mountain Regional High School, they did it again and has been duplicated in other schools. This is an example of what a Stage Three personalized learning environment is - learner-driven. (http://www.personalizelearning.com/2012/05/stages-of-personalized-learning.html)

 

A thank you goes out to Principal Marianne Young who agreed to the Independent Project and the learners who demonstrated to the world what a learner-driven environment is and what it can do for the diverse learner in all of us!
