CBAM: Stages of Concern about Personalized Learning

CBAM: Stages of Concern about Personalized Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
CBAM: Stages of Concern about Personalized Learning provides descriptions and strategies to guide change for each stage.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Change is not easy. If you are considering transforming to personalized learning environments, you may have concerns about the changes you have to do to make this work for you and your learners. If you are a coach or professional developer, you are working with teachers guiding them through the changes they need to do to personalize learning. This chart can help you determine what type of strategies to use to guide change about the following seven stages:

> Awareness:  do not know about or sure what Personalized Learning is
> Informational: tell me more about Personalized Learning
> Personal: concerned how Personalized Learning will impact them as a teacher
> Management: concerned about managing the classroom when learning is personalized
> Consequence: wants to know how Personalized Learning will impact teaching and learning
> Collaborative: looking forward to share with and learn from other teachers
> Refocusing: nterested to support teachers and lead the way to personalize learning

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.

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

All the public institutions of higher education in Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont have joined the New England Secondary School Consortium (newenglandssc.org) and three private institutions to endorse educational approaches that can strengthen student preparation for college, modern careers, and adult life.

 

Over the past decade, the movement to adopt proficiency-based approaches to teaching, learning, and graduating has gained momentum in New England, and throughout the country, as more educators, parents, business leaders, and elected officials recognize that high educational standards and strong academic preparation are essential to success in today's world.

Redesigning School to Graduate Capable, Confident Learners | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
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."

Continuum to Develop Expert Learners

Continuum to Develop Expert Learners | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Follow the continuum to become an expert learner. As this happens, teacher and learner roles change.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

An expert learner is a learner who is self-directed, self-regulated, motivated and engaged to learn. They have a purpose to learn something they are interested in. They are responsible and own their learning and monitor their progress. However, this doesn't just happen overnight or even all the time. Plus, learners may not be an expert on every concept, strategy or skill. So what we did was create a continuum to develop expert learners that provides the journey learners of all ages go through to build expertise.

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, 6:00 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.

Schools without Classrooms

Schools without Classrooms | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
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

3. The Camp Fire

Chris Watkins, a reader at The Institute of Education in London wrote "Learning: a sense-makers guide" that provides four teaching practices that help learners make sense of their learning.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Learning can make sense and is similar to how we make sense of other things. We do it gradually through experiences and building knowledge as we go. Talking, thinking, and reflecting about learning are the key factors to understanding. In the sense-makers guide,  Watkins writes that there are four teaching practices that can help learners make sense of their learning:

 

> Notice learning

> Have conversations about learning

> Reflect on your learning

> Make learning an object of learning.
