Kathleen McClaskey's insight:
Put learning back into the hands of the learner!

Through personalized learning, education as we know it is transformed as learners are empowered to take control of their own learning. This thorough and timely resource draws on Universal Design for Learning® principles to create a powerful shift in classroom dynamics by guiding learners to become self-directed, self-monitoring, and self-motivated.

Personalizing Education in a Standards-Based System | The Thinking Stick

Personalizing Education in a Standards-Based System | The Thinking Stick | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) | Scoop.it

Jeff Utecht provides food for thought on personalizing education and what it means for the learner.  

 

"Does it really matter that every child learns the same thing or at the same time? Or is it more important that they just become a learner? Learning how to learn, unlearn, and relearn and having the skills and the passion to make it happen.

 

What if it was just a school's mission and vision, or in my school's case, our Definition of Learning that drove learning in our schools. What if at the end of every year kids had to show this:

 

We value meaningful learning where students construct enduring understanding by developing and applying knowledge, skills, and attitudes.

 

Increased understanding is evidenced by students who:

> Explain its relevance
> Describe how it connects to or conflicts with prior learning
> Communicate it effectively to others
> Generalize and apply it effectively to new situations
> Reflect critically on their own and other's learning
> Ask questions to extend learning
> Create meaningful solutions

 

Do we care what class it happens in? Do we really care about the content? Or can we stand in awe of the great work our kids can produce when we make it personal and allow their passion to show through."

Finding one's passion and true purpose in life is essential to human flourishing.
 

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

In this new RSA Shorts video, Sir Ken Robinson argues that education, organisations and communities need to be built on a model of diversity rather than conformity, so that every individual is able to discover and develop their unique talents and abilities.
