The Student-Centered Classroom: Communicating What Matters

The Student-Centered Classroom: Communicating What Matters | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Students' ownership of the classroom and learning begins when you communicate that you're listening, that you respect them, and that they can trust you.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Pernille Ripp shares how she builds community from the beginning of the year in her 7th grade classes. Some of her strategies include letting her learners chose where they want to sit, having them create the rules and listening to each other. Trust and communication are the hallmarks of a learner-centered environment.

Personalize Learning Thought Leader Interview: "Learners Making Sense of their Learning"

Personalize Learning Thought Leader Interview: "Learners Making Sense of their Learning" | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

We had the privilege to interview Darren Cambridge, Director of the Connected Educator on the topic of personalized learning that is a main topic during Connected Educator Month.  Here are some comments that he made about personalizing learning that will give food for thought.

 

"What is your vision for personalizing learning?

 

I love the idea of enabling learners to make sense of their learning using more and more varied evidence.

 

What type of school culture is needed for personalized learning?

 

I think you need to move toward a school culture that's democratic, caring, inquiry-focused, genuinely social, that enacts participatory leadership. There needs to be a tolerance for messiness and frankness and a willingness to constantly be iterating towards something that works. Building trust is huge, and that takes time and lots of reflection in dialog at all levels."

 

Thank you Darren for your thoughtful and engaging responses!
