Connie Davis's insight:

The ability for students to work in dynamic, interdependent groups encourages more than just Critical thinking; it also provides authentic opportunities to self-regulate, find learning strategies that fit personal learning style, allows students to personalize content to fill learning gaps and to change environment based on personal learning needs of the day.

To Get the Most Out of Tablets, Use Smart Curation

To Get the Most Out of Tablets, Use Smart Curation | Personalized Learning | Scoop.it
How might efforts to curate benefit from the portability and ubiquity of mobile devices? Tools like Evernote and GoodReads allow for easy and valuable curation. But the harder questions are pedagogical and curricular.

Curation is an interesting topic that I had never considered previously. I need to look into this further. Any suggestions would certainly be welcome.

What a wonderful concept - curating things we percieve to be beautiful. Howard Gardner is such an amazing thinker!

 

I also love the term "relevance portfolio" –this is exactly what I think will be a stepping stone towards personalized learning through content curation.

Self -Directed Learning and Technology: By Dr. Valerie C. Bryan, for the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (... http://t.co/GFXuwxMtOy
Connie Davis's insight:

Self-directed doesn't mean solo. It means using self-regulation skills to know what actions best fit the situation and making decisions about which learning partners are needed throughout the process. Constant assessment and refinement need to happen as a learner progresses (learner encompasses both children and adults) through their field of study in order to make connections to prior knowledge, partner knowledge, and new information. Learners need to be able to set goals, plan, fail, refine, and repeat as many times as it takes to get it right. Adults learn this way - trust your students...they can do it too. Create a structured chaos of learning and watch them bloom.

"Inquiry based learning is a key tenet of the Inquiry Hub. When students get to choose their own topics, with guidance and support from their teachers, peers and community members, these learners will produce thoughtful, rich and compelling answers.

By helping students connect, create and learn together, we will encourage them to look outside of their box and seek a world of potential."

Connie Davis's insight:

Inquiry based learning is an important part of personalized learning. Students need to be explicitly taught these skills in order to progress.

Nancy White's curator insight, April 5, 2013 4:04 PM

Starting with teachers asking really good questions and progressing to students asking the questions are first steps toward personalized learning.  The richness of the learning environment described here that makes room for voice, community, and play will contribute to student ownership and personalized learning. I look forward to learning more about the Inquiry Hub Program! (http://www.inquiryhub.org/inquiry/)

Nancy White's curator insight, February 23, 3:59 PM

Another intersection between personalized learning and student curators: PLE's - Personalized Learning Environments - are centered around students curating information. 

 

"PLEs consist of a wide range of connections with both digital and nondigital resources. They blur the lines between formal and informal learning. And precisely because they are individualized to the needs and interests of the learner, eachone can look completely different."

Nancy White's curator insight, November 20, 2013 12:48 PM

I love these questions for education leaders looking to implement blended learning in their school or district:

 

-How is your program engineered to personalize learning?

-How do you enable student co-design and goal-setting? (key to ownership)

-How do you provide greater transparency? (key to buy-in)

-How does your program transform instructional design to student centered?

-How many forms of evidence are required for a st udent to successfully demonstrate mastery of competencies?
