Bryan Bronn shares this sign created by one of his learners who embraces personalized learning and realizes what it means to educate. Bryan also.describes his journey about creating personalized learning environments at Branson Junior High School and offers some great advice to administrators who are thinking about doing this at their schools. 


"Building robust educator capacity for personalizing the learning environment of a classroom, a teaching team or an entire school, requires empowering your teaching and learning team to experience the richness of personalized learning themselves. If you expect your team to facilitate personalized learning experiences for their learners, you must allow them to build their own island of success with personalized learning. Your school’s model will have common characteristics with other models of personalized learning from around the country and world; however it will also be unique if you allow your team to truly personalize your journey.  We encourage you to go create your own island of success with personalized learning!"

T"he small group of Dawson School students is teaming up with a Baylor College of Medicine program and doing research that's typically pursued by collegians and professionals.

"The team is writing computer algorithms that are applied to vast, decades-long cancer databases. The students' goal is to detect patterns or ties that could lead to early detection of cancers and possibly improved treatments."

Here is some exciting news for those education advocates that have worked to change federal policy to include competency-based education. Take a few minutes to comment on Senator Alexander's draft to include new assessment options in the re-authorization of ESEA.


"Senator Alexander’s discussion draft proposes two policy changes that would advance the K-12 competency education movement. He is accepting comments on his discussion draft until February 2, 2015 at fixingNCLB@help.senate.gov.

  • The draft proposes two assessment options. The first would maintain current law by requiring statewide testing annually in grades 3 through 8 and once in high school. The second would establish a state-defined option where states could develop an assessment system that may include any combination of annual statewide summative assessments, grade span assessments, and competency-based performance assessments.
  • The draft proposes to let states use federal funding reserved for the design and implementation of state assessment instruments to build competency-based assessments."

Exactly How A Learning Management System Can Improve Your Teaching ~ TeachThought | On education | Scoop.it

by Jill Margerison

 

"With the surge of ‘Big Data’ and uber-connected students, expectations regarding education are changing. Increasingly, like much of the interaction in our society these days, feedback from the teaching fraternity is required to not only be rapid, but also dynamically flexible, ongoing and personalised. Accordingly, the future of teaching involves teachers fulfilling the multiple role of instructor, analyst and facilitator. The future of teaching involves ‘learning analytics’.

"Whilst ‘learning analytics’ might signal change, it also heralds new opportunities. Working with ‘learning analytics’ can leverage your educational delivery further than just the constraints of the classroom walls and the tight regime of time-tabled school days."

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | On education | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.
