Proving Performance vs. ImProving Learning

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 17, 6:12 PM
Chris Watkins' article, Research Matters: Learning, Performance and Improvement, is about the relationship between learning in schools and performance in schools.  Watkins' research concludes that a focus on learning can enhance performance, where a focus on performance alone can depress performance. With traditional instruction, the climate in the classrooms becomes more performance oriented over years of schooling.

A performance-oriented environment focuses on looking good
rather than learning well.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, September 4, 6:12 PM
We refer to "students" as "learners" where...
  • Learning starts with the learner.
  • Universal Design for Learning is the framework for personalized learning.
  • Teachers universally-design lessons and projects that encourage voice and choice.
  • Learners understand how they learn best.
  • Learners take responsibility for their learning.
  • Learners own and drive their learning along their learning path.
  • Teachers and learners role change.
  • Teachers and learners are partners in learning who design authentic learning activities.
  • Learners demonstrate mastery in a competency-based system and progress at their own pace.

Making Sense of Learning

Making Sense of Learning | On education | Scoop.it
Chris Watkins, a reader at The Institute of Education in London wrote "Learning: a sense-makers guide" that provides four teaching practices that help learners make sense of their learning.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 28, 4:13 PM

Learning can make sense and is similar to how we make sense of other things. We do it gradually through experiences and building knowledge as we go. Talking, thinking, and reflecting about learning are the key factors to understanding. In the sense-makers guide,  Watkins writes that there are four teaching practices that can help learners make sense of their learning:

 

> Notice learning

> Have conversations about learning

> Reflect on your learning

> Make learning an object of learning.

John Dewey called what motivates people to learn is "living motivation". We bring our stories and autobiographies to learning every day. We want to add to them in ways that help us construct a future of our choosing that fits within a community. It is about constantly transforming who we are.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 31, 2013 3:59 PM

Justin shares 5 ways to create learner-centered classrooms. What a great way to start the new year by putting the learner at the center!

 

1. A student-centered classroom allows students to be an integral part of the assessment development process.

 

2. A student-centered classroom focuses on finding solutions to real-world problems.

 

3. A student-centered classroom is not about what the teacher is doing or what the teacher has done; it's about what the students are doing and what the students can do in the future.

 

4. A student-centered classroom embraces the notion that there are multiple ways to accomplish an individual task.

 

5. A student-centered classroom firmly believes that there is a partnership and a strong level of trust between educators and students.

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.

Via Kathleen McClaskey

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.

>>  Contributor: through empathy and understanding; making a difference to the surrounding world

>> Creator: being an innovator, designer and maker of new things

Students are the future, but what's the future for students? To arm them with the relevant, timeless skills for our rapidly changing world, we need to revolutionize what it means to learn. Education innovators like Dr. Sugata Mitra, visiting professor at MIT; Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy; and Dr. Catherine Lucey, Vice Dean of Education at UCSF, are redefining how we engage young minds for a creatively and technologically-advanced future. Which of these eduvators holds the key for unlocking the learning potential inside every student?

> Change the way they sit.

> Change the way they work.

> Change the knowledge they have.

> Change the expectations for all.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, August 25, 10:49 AM
Many teachers that partner with their learners and change how they teach told us they would never go back to traditional teaching. So we decided to ask a few of our friends what they think about framing personalized learning

"Personalized learning primarily involves changing the role of a child from a passive-oriented student to an active-oriented learner. Any process, practice, system or initiative which labels itself 'personalized,' but does not change the role of the learner to have more voice and choice in their own learning isn't fully personalized.  Much of what is being categorized as personalized learning today involves technology integration and enhancements in the role of the teacher, without necessarily empowering the learner to discover, follow and cultivate their own passions and take an ever-increasing role for the privilege and responsibility of learning."  - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2014/08/whos-framed-personalized-learning.html#sthash.MkbRFiBY.dpuf

What have you learned and what changes have you made from your initial steps?

 

"I have learned a lot in the past four years. Here is a top ten of what I have learned:

10. Don’t underestimate the abilities/flexibility of students.
9.  Never assume the abilities/flexibility of students.
8.  Share struggles, successes, questions with colleagues and students.
7.  Don’t scrap the old stuff; as long as it meets a target, it is worthy.
6.  Communicate with parents and students a lot, you can not communicate too much.
5.  Find ways to create a bridge between the old system and the new system.
4.  Stay organized.
3.  Work with your team of teachers to create interdisciplinary units.
2.  Nothing works as a canned program, modify as needed.
1.  Have fun!"
