Redesigning School to Graduate Capable, Confident Learners | On education | Scoop.it
Educators at schools that focus on deeper learning are nurturing confident, self-sufficient learners who are ready for the rigors of college regardless of their backgrounds.

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!

Roberto Ivan Ramirez's curator insight, July 8, 2013 9:00 PM

Esta nueva corriente de la educación se supone va a estar más centrada de manera especial sobre la conexión que se establezca entre la producción de los docentes con los alumnos, con un seguimiento más puntual sobre el uso de las herramientas digitales web 2.0, pero me imagino con un expertise cada vez más especializado en cuanto al dominio de las competencias (digitales) de los agentes educativos.

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."

What better way to discover how learners learn best but to ask a learner. This graphically engaging and funny video where Ned Cephalus shares the eight powerful conditions of learning gives "food for thought" and should get you thinking about why it may be important to understand how learners learn best.

Funny, but insightfu - and I love these drawing animations :-)

Learner Voice = Authenticity in Learning

Learner Voice = Authenticity in Learning | On education | Scoop.it
Why does learner voice matter? Giving voice encourages learners to participate in their own learning and give them authenticity in learning.

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.

10 Expectations Learners Have!

"We hear often of the "high expectations" schools must have of and for their students, yet we seldom hear of the expectations students have of their schools."

Learners' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools. Consider these expectations and then have an open dialogue on how you can create "learner-centered" environments where these expectations could be realized for the learners in your school.

Just had this discussion with a dear friend in his late 70's. Thanks for posting this!

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 15, 2013 11:13 AM

I liked this. It was an opportunity for me to listen to the learner point of view. The 10 expectations are relevant at any level but these are particularly important at the secondary and college level in my view. These expectations also speak to how on line and blended learning environments will or will not connect to learners. well worth 4 minutes!-Lou
