Continuum of Self-Efficacy: Path to Perseverance

Continuum of Self-Efficacy: Path to Perseverance | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
The Continuum of Self-Efficacy is about building self-esteem, becoming self-confident and persevering to achieve any goal set.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
Self-efficacy holds significant implications both for learners and educators in the journey to nurture high levels of skill and knowledge. The most difficult and challenging learner to teach is the learner who believes he or she cannot succeed.

The Stages of the Learning Independence Continuum

The Stages of the Learning Independence Continuum | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

The Institute @ CESA #1 is introducing the stages of the Learning Independence Continuum in their blog following the release of the white paper, The Learning Independence Continuum.  In their first post they provide an overview with the remaining posts focusing on one of the stages of the continuum.

 

> Motivation

> Engagement

> Self-efficacy

> Ownership

> Independence

 

"In personalized learning environments, learning activities will fall all along this continuum – at times it’s more important for the educator to drive the work, at others, the learner will take the driver’s seat. However, in order for this to happen, all of the characteristics along the continuum should be developed and nurtured in each learner."

I wonder if there isn't another stage here - or maybe it's not on the continuum at all, but somewhere else: interdependence.

I'm starting to think we don't typically learn anything independently - but through interactions with other people, or the knowledge someone else has created.

Angie - Yes! You are right - interdependence. How to collaborate and work in teams. There is a large push to create independent learners and expert learners. Now you have me thinking.
