PL Newsletter - 2013 is "The Year of the Learner"

PL Newsletter - 2013 is "The Year of the Learner" | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

We agree with George Couros and Will Richardson that 2013 will be the "Year of the Learner." We are seeing a big culture shift around the world to personalize learning for all learners. When learners are given a greater voice in how they learn, they are more motivated and engaged in their learning. When learners have choices in how they prefer to access and engage with content, and then express what they know, they take ownership of their learning. We encourage you to take one action this "Year of the Learner" by encouraging learner voice and choice.

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

The focus in education for 2013 is The Learner!  This newsletter includes news you will want to share with colleagues everywhere. Take a look at what is featured in this January issue:

My Transformation as a Teacher

My Transformation as a Teacher | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Pernille Ripp, 7th grade teacher in WI, shares her transformation and pathways to personalized learning environments and passionate learners.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Pernille offers insight on why she embraces personalized learning after 6 years.  She points out that the journey she has taken to transform herself is really about the learners that she teaches. Here is an excerpt that says it all.


"Six years ago, I set out on a journey that would challenge my belief that education was an institution that could not be changed, but instead had to be blindly followed no matter the collateral damage in its wake. I now know that the day I started asking my learners what changes they needed to become more engaged learners, was the day that I made a difference in the way education can be used. Yet this change is fundamentally not about me. It is about the learners I teach and it is for them that we must embrace a more meaningful way of educating. Call it personalizing learning or some other title, but in the end, we must make the very education that we are stewards of become about the kids that we teach again."

Continuum of Voice: What it Means for the Learner | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Examples and ideas that illustrate the Continuum of Voice moving to agency through the Stages of Personalized Learning Environments.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Voice gives learners a chance to share their opinions about something they believe in. We adapted the Continuum of Voice chart we used from Students at the Center in our post Learner Voice Demonstrates Commitment to Building Agency. The learning environment changes as you encourage voice and can see learners taking more control of their learning. We call this process the Stages of Personalized Learning Environments (PLE). - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2016/01/continuum-of-voice-what-it-means-for.html#sthash.kLBn5zQT.dpuf

What Learners Think about Agency

What Learners Think about Agency | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Final post in Collaborative Blog Series on Learner Agency. The Institute for Personalized Learning asked kids what agency means to them.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

The Institute for Personalized Learning asked some middle and high school students from their member districts to reflect on what learner agency means to them and to answer a few questions on the topic. 


This brings our collaborative series on learner agency to a close. As we stated in the first blog post, Learner Agency: The Missing Link, “Learner agency often gets missed in conversations on transforming the educational system.” It is clear from the responses that kids have a sense of ‘agency’ when they feel in control of things that happen around them. They want to feel like they can influence events, especially how and what they learn.

Personalize Learning: Choice is More than a Menu of Options

Personalize Learning: Choice is More than a Menu of Options | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

This post explains the continuum of building choice so learners self-direct their learning for a purpose to build agency.

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
Providing choice can be confusing. If learners are choosing from a set of pre-planned choices from a computer program or a list of options from the teacher, then the teacher is ultimately the one responsible for the learning not the learner. As learners increase responsibility around voice, teachers can also provide a process that builds ownership as learners move toward agency with choice.

Discover the Learner in Every Child

Discover the Learner in Every Child | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
To understand how a learner learns best, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can be the lens that reduces barriers to learning and optimizes support to meet needs for all learners.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
This Part 3 in a Collaborative Blog Series on Learner Agency with the Institute for Personalized Learning.
Each learner has variability in how they access and process information, how they engage with content and how they express what they know and understand. Using the UDL lens of Access, Engage and Express to understand learners can not only help the teacher better design instruction but can also offer the learner a way to tell their story about how they learn best. When the learner uses the UDL lens to share how they learn, it validates them as a learner.
UDL is the framework that applies to ALL learners and as a means for creating personalized, learner-centered environments where each learner can develop agency.

Put the "Person" in "Personalization"

Put the "Person" in "Personalization" | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
It's all about the learner. Not technology or improving test scores. It's time to take semantics out of the conversations and focus on what really matters: the learners.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

It's not about technology. It's really not about school. It's all about the learner, the "person" in "personalization" and how they learn best and that what they learn is meaningful and for a purpose.  It is all about the relationships that learners make and need to support their learning. It is also about the teacher - a valuable person in the relationship. Teachers and learners can work together to develop learning goals and design activities that are authentic and relevant for the learner so they are engaged in learning. Learning has to have a context that learners can grasp and understand. - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2015/10/put-person-in-personalization.html#sthash.qyM0Grkz.dpuf

Cuando en realidad debemos preguntar, dialogar en lugar de conjeturar. Si, tratamos con nativos digitales pero nuestra función sigue siendo insustituible, dotar de competencias y destrezas para el ciudadano del siglo XXI. Para ello es menester brindar una atención personalizada a nuestros estudiantes, lo cual requiere una mejor gestión del tiempo de enseñanza, aprender a escuchar.

Discover Wildlands School who began their journey 10 years ago to create a school that would be learner-centered. They have written about this journey in their book, An Improbable School. Here is what they say in how they personalize learning.


"When it comes to personalized learning, Wildlands emphasizes personal relationships with individual students. We have learned it is more important to provide opportunities for students to be heard, be involved, be connected, find relevance, and play an important role in the school, than to tell them what we (or some far away committee) think they need to know. Honest conversations build relationships. Quality relationships build supportive and open learning environments where learners feel valued, connected, and are willing to take part." - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/#sthash.mW9W4SSq.dpuf

PERSONALIZED LEARNING STARTS WITH THE LEARNER, NOT TECHNOLOGY

PERSONALIZED LEARNING STARTS WITH THE LEARNER, NOT TECHNOLOGY | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Personalized Learning is a controversial term that means different things to different people depending on where and how it is referenced. Some believe it is about promoting programs or tools that per
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Both of us are advocates for the use of technology to support instruction and to help learners gain independent learning skills. For years, as coaches consulting on technology integration, we observed classrooms where technology sat idle or to present lessons using new tools but the same way they teach: teacher-directed. The current system seems to encourage the use of technology for traditional teacher-directed methods.


The system needs to change from focusing on problems to rethinking the design of teaching and learning around how learners learn best. Personalized learning starts with the learner, not the technology!

First blog in series defining Learner Agency written collaboratively with the Institute of Personalized Learning.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Learner agency often gets missed in conversations on transforming the educational system. We have a sense of ‘agency’ when we feel in control of things that happen around us; when we feel that we can influence events. This is an important sense for learners to develop. Learners must understand:

  • when they need new learning and how to learn what they need
  • when they need to unlearn what will no longer serve them 
  • when they need to relearn what they need to be successful
