8 Aboriginal Ways of Learning

8 Aboriginal Ways of Learning | Personalized learning for LA15 | Scoop.it

This Aboriginal pedagogy framework is expressed as eight interconnected pedagogies involving narrative-driven learning, visualised learning processes, hands-on/reflective techniques, use of symbols/metaphors, land-based learning, indirect/synergistic logic, modelled/scaffolded genre mastery, and connectedness to community. But these can change in different settings.

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.

Personalizing Education: "What If..." - Ben Kestner, TEDxKids 2012

Ben Kestner studied flute at the London College of music and in Berlin with Andreas Blau and after spending time playing and teaching he pursued a career in education. He is currently Middle School Principal at St. John's International School in Belgium. He believes that we need to push the reset button when we talk about the future of education and start again.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, January 30, 2013 1:35 PM

After listening to this TED Talk from Ben Kestner, it validated the real reasons why we should personalize learning. He boldly states that "technology, school and community need to converge as ONE".  He sees that learning needs to be related to the learners world where they can explore it more deeply, take action and make mistakes. I could not agree more. How do we begin to turn education on it's heels and create a culture shift? Chime in after you listen to this TED Talk and look for Personalize Learning's interview with Ben.

Continuum to Develop Expert Learners

Continuum to Develop Expert Learners | Personalized learning for LA15 | Scoop.it
Follow the continuum to become an expert learner. As this happens, teacher and learner roles change.

Via Kathleen McClaskey

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, March 20, 2014 10:32 AM

An expert learner is a learner who is self-directed, self-regulated, motivated and engaged to learn. They have a purpose to learn something they are interested in. They are responsible and own their learning and monitor their progress. However, this doesn't just happen overnight or even all the time. Plus, learners may not be an expert on every concept, strategy or skill. So what we did was create a continuum to develop expert learners that provides the journey learners of all ages go through to build expertise.

Introducing a set of four videos that demonstrate student-centered assessments.

 

"What does student-centered assessment look like in the classroom? How do students benefit from this type of assessment? Why do teachers implement these practices in their classrooms? The Students at the Center project, in conjunction with Dr. Heidi Andrade, Ed.D. and the students and teachers from IS 223 (Brooklyn, NY), produced this suite of videos to begin to answer these questions for those wishing to implement more student-centered approaches in the classroom, school, district, or beyond."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, June 28, 2013 9:16 PM

The UDL 2.0 Guidelines can assist anyone who plans lessons/units of study or develops curricula (goals, methods, materials, and assessments) to reduce barriers, as well as optimize levels of challenge and support, to meet the needs of all learners from the start. They can also help educators identify the barriers found in existing curricula. You can use the UDL Guidelines to help you determine your learners strengths, interests, and challenges and how they:

 

> prefer or need to access and process information.

> prefer to express what they know.

> like to engage with the content.

 

When learners know how they prefer or need to access information, engage with the content, and express what they know and understand, then they take responsibility for their learning.

Sarah share the lessons that she has learned in creating a learner-centered environment where her learners assess their own work and the work of their peers. Here is the question we asked and her response of what she called her "Top Ten".

 

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!"

"If you like to use your iPhone, iPad or laptop in your classroom because it allows you to effortlessly navigate the learning space, one of the greatest frustrations can be having to constrain yourself to the vicinity of the projector cable every time you want to share your screen with the class.

I have seen this as a common practice even in open plan learning environments, which instantly does away with it’s greatest feature by forcing the teacher to move back to the front of the room.

Whilst you can get wireless projectors at great expense, have you ever thought of using Apple’s $99 Apple TV? I hadn’t until recently, but since using it I could never go back to a physical projector/tv connection for the following 4 reasons:..."

Change is not easy. If you are considering transforming to personalized learning environments, you may have concerns about the changes you have to do to make this work for you and your learners. If you are a coach or professional developer, you are working with teachers guiding them through the changes they need to do to personalize learning. This chart can help you determine what type of strategies to use to guide change about the following seven stages:

> Awareness:  do not know about or sure what Personalized Learning is
> Informational: tell me more about Personalized Learning
> Personal: concerned how Personalized Learning will impact them as a teacher
> Management: concerned about managing the classroom when learning is personalized
> Consequence: wants to know how Personalized Learning will impact teaching and learning
> Collaborative: looking forward to share with and learn from other teachers
> Refocusing: nterested to support teachers and lead the way to personalize learning

Here are some of Krissy's thoughts behind Learning:

 

"Learning is a journey.  Our kids change. The world changes.  We change as teachers.  This morning, I made a revised version of Classroom A versus Classroom B.  As someone pointed out, it’s not a black and white issue. There is so much grey and so much individual choice.  I’m not saying A or B is better for everyone. I’m saying you’ve gotta think and really understand what you want learning to look like in your classroom."
