Growing Sustainable Personalized Learning Environments

Growing Sustainable Personalized Learning Environments | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Building a system of personalized learning environments takes a process and time. Check out this four year model to build a sustainable system.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Moving to a Personalized Learning Environment (PLE) is a culture shift. Moving an entire district or a region to a system with sustainable PLEs takes time and a process. PLEs are built on a human infrastructure with groups of people where some may be definitely ready and others resistant. Those that are ready may still hesitate to jump in unless they have the support and resources they need when they need it.

Learner Voice = Authenticity in Learning

Learner Voice = Authenticity in Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Why does learner voice matter? Giving voice encourages learners to participate in their own learning and give them authenticity in learning.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Learner voice gives learners a chance to share their opinions about something they believe in. There are so many aspects of "school" and "learning" where learners have not been given the opportunity to be active participants. Giving them voice encourages them to participate in their own learning. Some learners, especially those that are concerned about extrinsic factors like grades, may not feel comfortable expressing their own opinions. Because of this concern, teachers have devised multiple ways to give learners their voice anonymously in surveys, group interviews, and in class discussions. Now it is time to look at learner voice and why it matters for all learners.

Competency-Based: It's All about Learning NOT Time

Competency-Based: It's All about Learning NOT Time | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Fred Bramante explains why a good competency-based system will make a difference for all learners.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Be inspired by Fred Bramante who leads the fight to move to a competency-based system. In a recent TedTalk, he demonstrates the passion he has for competency-based learning and extended learning opportunities (ELO's). He wants every learner to find their passion and have a mentor that can help them realize their hopes and dreams.

 

When asked what personally drives him to want to change education as we know it, he shares a personal experience that may can identify with: "School taught me that I wasn't very bright. Life taught me that school was wrong."

 

As a co-author of "Off the Clock" with Rose Colby, he believes that "a good competency-based system will make a difference for all learners because they will be learning what they love instead of trying to jump through traditional school hoops."

Design Learning from the Extremes - "The Myth of Average"

Design Learning from the Extremes - "The Myth of Average" | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

Todd Rose talks about the "Myth of the Average" in his TedTalk comparing education with the Air Force who found that no one is average.

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Each student has a jagged learning profile. They have strengths, averages and challenges. If you design learning for the average, you design it for nobody. We have created learning environments where we can not expect learners to do what we want them to do.

 

The average hurts everyone. Designing average destroys talents in two ways:

> The existing educational environment can not challenge learners as it creates an environment where they become bored and sometimes dropout. 

> It means that your weaknesses will make it harder for you to see your talent.  

 

It is all about nurturing individual potential.

Average is an interesting concept. Pinning students down to numbers or percentages in terms of what they can achieve does them a disservice and never tells the real story.

Roger Cook, Superintendent of Taylor County Schools, Ky, shares how their district is "Performance-Based with Zero Dropouts".

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Discover in this interview how Roger Cook has implemented a Performance-based Education System with Zero Dropouts.

 

During his first year as Superintendent, Mr. Cook transformed Taylor County Schools into a performance-based educational system, challenged teachers and students to meet 21st century expectations with rigor and relevance, and spearheaded the effort to fund new, much-needed facilities.

 

The drop-out policy for our schools states that any student wishing to drop-out of school must come to the superintendent's office and meet with me. I listen to their reasons for wanting to drop-out and then tell them they are not allowed to do it. Our board of education policy states that no students can drop-out before the age of 18 years of age. The state has now adopted this policy into law with Senate Bill 95. I then proceed to find them an alternative they can live with and still get their diploma.

10 Expectations Learners Have!

"We hear often of the "high expectations" schools must have of and for their students, yet we seldom hear of the expectations students have of their schools."

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Learners' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools. Consider these expectations and then have an open dialogue on how you can create "learner-centered" environments where these expectations could be realized for the learners in your school.

Learners NOT Students!

Learners NOT Students! | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
The term "student" was defined in the middle ages. It is time to rethink what that implies and redefine the learner.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

All of us are learners. Think about it. We were born curious and open to learning or we wouldn't walk or talk. It's just how each of us were made. Learning is part of us. We were not born students-- we were born learners. Our first experiences of learning was through play and discovery.

 

A learner...

>> develops their own learning goals.

>> monitors their progress in meeting their goals.

>> has a purpose or interest to learn something.

>> asks questions.seeks information.

>> finds ways to collaborate with others.

>> wants to know something because they want to know it -- not for a grade.

>> is curious about life and never stops learning.

 

Rethink what the term "student" implies.

All the references to student that we could find represent someone who studies or is being taught as part of an institution.

 

What are your thoughts about using the term "learner" instead of "student"?

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, April 22, 2013 1:35 PM

Personal Pathways to Graduation

John H. Clarke shares the Pathways Program at Mt. Abraham High School and why all learning is personal.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

In our interview with John, he reflects about personalized learning and what it means for high schools:

 

"Personalized learning emphasizes the beliefs, talents, interests and aspirations already in place, using them to probe deeply into the questions that the individual finds meaningful and useful. Personal questions then become tools for analysis and creative work. Personalized high schools use this dynamic process to make learning more effective as well as more applicable."

Learning IS Personal

Learning IS Personal | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Learning is personal. Each of us is unique. Because learners are so diverse, learning needs to start with each learner.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

 Think about your own experiences when you were young and you felt like you could play and choose how you would learn? Then think about the times when you were told how to play or learn.

 

How did you feel in each of these situations?

 

Each of us has our own experiences growing up, different relationships, and how we learned. Each of us comes from small or large families with different backgrounds, neighborhoods, and friends. Because of these experiences, we are different than others. We are unique. Our learning experiences are personal to us. We are born inquisitive, curious, and creative. The power of us is our diversity. Each of us learns in different ways and may choose a different way to learn.

Responsibility vs Accountability

Responsibility vs Accountability | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
If learners take responsibility for their learning, they will be more motivated to learn. If teachers are accountable for their learning, then there is no reason to be motivated other than for a grade.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Responsibility means a moral obligation and something taken upon one's self.

Accountability is more of a social contract or social obligation. Accountability can be measurable. If teachers are accountable for their learners' learning, then why would learners feel responsible for their own learning?


When learners feel a sense of ownership, they want to engage in academic tasks and persist in learning. If teachers and learners are learners first, then responsibility comes with being a learner. Learners of all ages become responsible for their learning when they own and drive their learning.

So what is it? Teachers and learners need to be accountable for their own learning by taking responsibility for their learning. What do you see as the difference between accountability and responsibility?

UDL Guides Personalized Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guides the process to personalize learning using the UDL principles.
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

The UDL 2.0 Guidelines can assist anyone who plans lessons/units of study or develops curricula (goals, methods, materials, and assessments) to reduce barriers, as well as optimize levels of challenge and support, to meet the needs of all learners from the start. They can also help educators identify the barriers found in existing curricula. You can use the UDL Guidelines to help you determine your learners strengths, interests, and challenges and how they:

 

> prefer or need to access and process information.

> prefer to express what they know.

> like to engage with the content.

 

When learners know how they prefer or need to access information, engage with the content, and express what they know and understand, then they take responsibility for their learning.

Education 3.0: Altering Round Peg in Round Hole Education

Education 3.0: Altering Round Peg in Round Hole Education | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein shares her Ignite talk for ISTE 2013 that was recently rejected by the selection committee. Discover Education 3.0!

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

After reading this blog, Jackie has articulated a new vision for education where she sees that the "best interests of the learner" needs to come first. I could not agree more. She describes Education 3.0 in this way: "Learners as connectors, creators, constructivists."

 

"Education 3.0 is a constructivist, heutagogical approach to teaching and learning.  The teachers, learners, networks, connections, media, resources, tools create a a unique entity that has the potential to meet individual learners’, educators’, and even societal needs.  Education 3.0 recognizes that each educator’s and student’s journey is unique, personalized, and self-determined.

 

The bottom line, though, is not is what is in the best interests of the teacher, the administration, the politicians.  It is what is in the best interests of the learner.  The student should be central to education – not the content, not the tests, not the standards, not what we think students should know and do.  Teachers did not become teachers to teach to the test, to develop practice tests or worksheets, to work with pre-scripted curriculum to meet standards.  Teachers became teachers to teach students, first and foremost.  The learner needs to be central to all teaching endeavors."

 

Thank you Jackie for sharing this perspective with educators, everywhere!
