Introducing the Continuum of Ownership. Discover how learners can move from compliance to autonomy.  

 

Chris Watkins, an independent consultant and leading authority on meta-learning in the UK and former reader at The Institute of Education, London Centre for Leadership in Learning makes these four points of what happens when learners drive the learning. When learners drive their learning,
  • it leads to greater engagement and intrinsic motivation for them to want to learn, 
  • learners setting a higher challenge for themselves, 
  • learners evaluating their own work, and 
  • better problem-solving skills.

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."

As the fifth post in our blog series on Learner Agency, Jean Garrity shares about a visit to an elementary classroom in an urban district in southeast Wisconsin where she was drawn to an eight year old boy named William. 


Jean reflected and provided strategies for teachers on the following questions:

  • How can educators support learners like William and increase their sense of ownership? 
  • How can educators help learners become more independent?

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.

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!

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, 2015 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. 

Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, September 23, 2015 8:54 AM

Peter Hutton desgined and runs a school in which students make the most important decisions about their learning: what to study, when and with whom. There are no grade levels, no "periods" in the day, and the staff is co-hired with students. It's been incredibly successful!

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, September 17, 2013 3:35 PM
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
Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, September 18, 2013 8:18 AM

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.
