I am taking the course right now and can't tell you how much it has made me think much deeper into my practice and how though I am familiar with and use personalized learning in my room, there is so much more to learn and grow from. This course is well worth the time and provides great collaboration!

Danette Carroll, 8th grade Language Arts teacher, Luella Middle School, Henry County Schools, GA shared:

""I liked: seeing your faces, posting and reading replies, online sessions, and watching the videos. I have no suggestions as this is the best online class experience I have had to date. The other day I was in my principal's office and we were talking about how to get teachers to make "The Shift"- I told him that everyone should have the opportunity to take this class! "

Personalized Learning and Query Books

Personalized Learning and Query Books | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Borrow a strategy from Isaac Newton and have your students keep a journal of their questions as they grow their own ideas for personalized learning.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Discover how Cathy Knutson took Genius Hour and had her learners create Query Books.  How ingenious! She makes reference to two resources, Where Good Ideas Come From and What Do you do with an Idea to help her bring her idea to life. Here are her comments about the process her learners took to develop Query Books.


"As students record their ideas, several things happen. They are giving their ideas a voice, recording them so they will be remembered, and building the habit of paying attention to their ponderings. Each query book would act as a personalized idea "bucket list" of sorts. As they collected and cultivated ideas over time, they would no doubt find that some have more merit than others (a truth that all great minds must accept). Although not every idea is born for greatness, each would help students become more creative thinkers."

Changing Perceptions - Every Child a Learner

Changing Perceptions - Every Child a Learner | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Discover how to create a culture where learners are more valued than students.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
The learner uses the UDL lens to share their strengths and challenges in learning, their preferences or needs to access, engage and express as well as their aspirations, talents and interests. At that moment when a learner is able to tell their story about how they learn with their teacher, the "partnership in learning" begins between the teacher and the learner. This opens the door for the teacher to have a conversation with the learner about learning goals, skills and strategies that the learner needs to work on to reduce any barriers and maximize learning. The undeniable outcome in using the UDL lens is that the child has been validated as a learner. This is something that rarely occurs today in anyone's education and will have a positive and profound impact for any learner.

Who's Framed Personalized Learning?

Who's Framed Personalized Learning? | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Why personalized learning is all about the learner, starting with the learner. It's time to frame it around the stories where learners are owning and driving their learning.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
Many teachers that partner with their learners and change how they teach told us they would never go back to traditional teaching. So we decided to ask a few of our friends what they think about framing personalized learning

"Personalized learning primarily involves changing the role of a child from a passive-oriented student to an active-oriented learner. Any process, practice, system or initiative which labels itself 'personalized,' but does not change the role of the learner to have more voice and choice in their own learning isn't fully personalized.  Much of what is being categorized as personalized learning today involves technology integration and enhancements in the role of the teacher, without necessarily empowering the learner to discover, follow and cultivate their own passions and take an ever-increasing role for the privilege and responsibility of learning."  - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2014/08/whos-framed-personalized-learning.html#sthash.MkbRFiBY.dpuf

Personalized Learning, Maine Style

Personalized Learning, Maine Style | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Putting learners at the center and in charge of their own learning is the focus of this article from Educational Leadership. Maine recently passed legislation requiring that beginning in 2018, high school diplomas must be awarded on the basis of learner proficiency. No longer will "seat time" be a passport to graduation.

 

Under the new legislation, schools must offer learners multiple pathways and opportunities to demonstrate learning proficiency, including teacher-designed or learner-designed assessments, portfolios, performances, exhibitions, projects, and community service. To reach this goal, all Maine school districts will need to explore personalized learning.

Access, Engage, and Express: The Lens for Teaching and Learning

Access, Engage, and Express: The Lens for Teaching and Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Access, Engage, and Express, based on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, is the lens for teaching and learning for all learners.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
Access, Engage, and Express (TM) is the lens for understanding how anyone learns best. The reason we came up with these three words was to help educators easily understand their learners using this lens. We want Access, Engage, and Express to be an integral part of their daily approach to teaching and learning.  Using Access, Engage and Express was developed from the Universal Design for Learning® (UDL) principles that are based on neuroscience and how we learn.

"UDL is the framework for Personalized Learning."

Barbara Bray's curator insight, December 8, 10:29 AM

Why do teachers and learners need a lens for learning? This post will share the importance of understanding how you learn best. Access is about how you transform and process information into useable knowledge. Engage is how you best engage with content. Express is how you demonstrate what you know and understand. If you use this lens, you and your teacher become partners in learning.

Chris Watkins' article, Research Matters: Learning, Performance and Improvement, is about the relationship between learning in schools and performance in schools.  Watkins' research concludes that a focus on learning can enhance performance, where a focus on performance alone can depress performance. With traditional instruction, the climate in the classrooms becomes more performance oriented over years of schooling.

A performance-oriented environment focuses on looking good

There is a growing consensus that college and career readiness depends on not just academic knowledge and skills but on a wide range of social and developmental competencies, as well—such as the ability to monitor one’s own learning, persist at challenging tasks, solve complex problems, set realistic goals, and communicate effectively in many kinds of settings.

  • Learners take responsibility for their learning.
  • Learners own and drive their learning along their learning path.
  • Teachers and learners role change.

Personalize your learning environment | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Transforming a traditional classroom into a personalized learning environment takes a process. Personalized learning experts Barbara Bray and Kathleen McClaskey tell you how you can set it in motion.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Personalized learning is built on the idea that each learner is unique and learns in different ways. This is called variability in learning. To support all learners’ unique needs and preferences, learning environments have to be flexible. It takes a process to transform learning environments and change learner and teacher roles.

University learners need to be similarly considered.  There is very little ubiquity of prior experience with such diverse intakes - Plan to shift from pedagogy to andragogy to heutagogy.  Student needs shift from early engagement where pedagogy (teacher direction) is the norm, to andragogy where the role of the teacher shifts to facilitating student engagement in the processes of learning, to heutagogy where students define and organise their own learning requirements.
