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!

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.

Educators at schools that focus on deeper learning are nurturing confident, self-sufficient learners who are ready for the rigors of college regardless of their backgrounds.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Envision Schools is a small public charter network in the San Francisco Bay Area whose mission is to prepare learner to get into and graduate from college, and to do this, teachers focus on helping learners develop what they call a “deeper learning” skill set. Learners have to master academic content and skills, collaborate effectively, think critically, reflect on how they learn, and understand how they can have an impact on their own success.

What do you mean by Personalization?

What do you mean by Personalization? | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Elliot Washor writes a post about what really is personalization and deeper learning.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Elliot Washor, co-founder of Big Picture Learning, reflects on what Personalization means. Joins us in a free live webinar on April 22nd at 5pm ET where Elliot will share his professional insights on personalization.

 

Here are just a few excerpts from this post that looks deeper into the meaning of personalization.

 

"Since our beginnings, personalization has been at the core of our work. We strive for schools to be communities where every student is known through their interests, academics and how they are doing socially and emotionally in and outside of school. "

 

"Structures in schools — like personalized learning plans that start with each student’s voice, choice and interests where parents, teachers and mentors are involved in understanding and developing the next steps, courses and projects a student will do ‑—need to be part of any learning environment and can become a great digital technology platform. Instead, what we get is a hijacking of words and terms that sound like education is personalized. Sadly, the real practice these words symbolize is missing from far too many schools and most digital platforms."

Prioritizing Student Voices

Prioritizing Student Voices | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
In order to find value in their learning, students need to find their voices. Teachers can encourage student participation by enabling rather than enforcing it.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Joshua Block from SLA in Philadelphia shares the importance of learner voice and how he plans to help learners amplify their voice this year. Here are his suggestions where I have changed "student" to "learner" in this list:


> Have learners share their work out loud.

> Have learners generate questions and facilitate.

> Have learners evaluate their own work  (My note: this is called Assessment AS Learning)

> Integrate presentation into projects> Remember to get out of the way

So what does Personalized Learning really mean? | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
This post clarifies that personalized learning starts with the learner and ownership of learning.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
We refer to "students" as "learners" where...
  • Learning starts with the learner.
  • Universal Design for Learning is the framework for personalized learning.
  • Teachers universally-design lessons and projects that encourage voice and choice.
  • Learners understand how they learn best.
  • Learners take responsibility for their learning.
  • Learners own and drive their learning along their learning path.
  • Teachers and learners role change.
  • Teachers and learners are partners in learning who design authentic learning activities.
  • Learners demonstrate mastery in a competency-based system and progress at their own pace.

Personalize your learning environment

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.

more...
Kim Flintoff's curator insight, July 3, 9:00 PM

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.

Vittra has international schools that use design that encourages creativity and curiosity.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Vittra runs 30 schools in Sweden and wants learning to take place everywhere in its schools, so it threw out the "old-school" thinking of straight desks in a line in a four-walled classroom. They eliminated all of its classrooms in favor of an environment that fosters children’s "curiosity and creativity". 

 

Vittra opened Telefonplan School in Stockholm where Architect Rosan Bosch designed the school so children could work independently in opened-spaces while lounging, or go to "the village" to work on group projects. Check out the Five Learning Spaces:

1. The Cave

2. The Lab

> Notice learning

> Have conversations about learning

> Reflect on your learning
