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.

In other words, they could read for all the same reasons that we can now use computers. We don’t know how to use computers because we learned it in school, but because we wanted to learn it and we were free to learn it in whatever way worked best for us. It is the saddest of ironies that many people now see the fluidity and effectiveness of this process as a characteristic of computers, rather than what it is, which is a characteristic of human beings.

Rather a long read, but makes a valuable point about autonomous learning.

Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, August 14, 2014 2:47 AM

So much wisdom  in this article. Data doesn't have all the answers, and schools are becoming more and more driven by data. Favorite quote: "Because guess what? If there is one thing that the data proves, it’s that our children are all different."  And all children want to learn.

harloff's curator insight, August 14, 2014 10:38 AM

It is not up to our children to accept a disability label in order to “qualify” for an appropriate learning environment; it is up to adults to provide learning environments which are flexible enough to accommodate the natural variations in our children.

The Future of E-Ducation: The Impact of Technology and Analytics on the Education Industry

This groundbreaking EdTech study examines the way that modern technology is bringing remarkable innovation into the educational sector; a field which has historically remained fairly fixed and traditional for centuries. The report analyses the degree to which education is being made into a universally accessible, innovative, personalized, and adaptive experience, and finds that the these changes will be pivotal for achieving the United Nations’ goal of universal education by 2015.

While watching the video - I was struck by how much the entire school environment looked like a library.  When you can't tear down and create a brand new school - look to your library as a great place for blended learning to take hold and cultures to shift toward personalized learning!

quel est votre avis ? est ce que l’éducation français doit se concentrer sur l'utilisation d'un clavier plutôt que l'ecriture ?

A débattre !

EdTech@FAIS's curator insight, February 4, 2015 6:38 PM

Is there a brain-memory connection to learning cursive that can't be learned with typing skills? What do you think?

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 5, 2015 5:42 AM

So sensible to teach typing, but I find children who can write cursive can read it.  It will be a pity to loose the ability to read old text, e.g. a letter from Granny!

A Paradigm Shift for Student Engagement

Even more interesting is that, according to research, children will play video games for several hours, yet fail as much as 80% of the time at those games, all the while continuing to persevere with an almost irrational determination.

Interesting article about making learning into a kind of computer game.

Edgar Mata's curator insight, August 15, 2014 10:40 AM

Un buen artículo.

 

Tiene razón: Los niños y jóvenes pueden pasar horas con un vídeo-juego a pesar de que fallarán el 80% de las ocasiones y "perseverarán con  una determinación casi irracional", algo de esta perseverancia y determinación sería útil en el salón de clases.

 

Sin embargo, las críticas a su propuesta de usar juegos en la clase también tienen sentido:

"¿Qué pasará el próximo año cuando asistan a una nueva clase y se den cuenta que la escuela es trabajo y no 'juego y diversión'? Los estás preparando para una decepción."

 

Un interesante debate.
