This is a a wonderful program: check out Kathleen's notes

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Don't miss this project that was designed by learners at The Inquiry Hub. The back story is that the learners wrote a grant so they could design and built this community garden. Here are some insights into The Inquiry Hub.

 

"The structure of the Inquiry Hub is around topics. In the morning, the teachers and learners start off with a topical workshop. Then the learners work on online courses guided by their teachers. In the afternoon they work on their inquiry project individually and/or collaboratively. Dave shared a topic that took a life of its own: The Green Inquiry Project where Shauna, Sophia, and Hanna wrote and received a wildlife grant as part of their environmental sustainability group."

Carol Koechlin's curator insight, May 2, 2013 10:03 AM

Great model that could be replicated in the Learning Commons to empower students to own their inquiry.

Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, May 23, 2013 8:18 AM

I love the name "Inquiry Hub"...such a powerful way to help us all reimagine what a learning community can be if it's not a "school."

History of personal learning environments - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Personal Learning Environments are systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to

and thereby achieve learning goals.

A PLE may be composed of one or more subsystems: As such it may be a desktop application, or composed of one or more web-based services."[1]

Marc Crompton's insight:

Interesting brief history of the PLE.  The originator of this page and some contributors are noted researchers involved in many of the other work that I've read.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, March 10, 2013 2:26 PM

The Six Steps to Personalize Learning workshop can be personalized for your school, district, or region. We come to you to guide the process. Several of the ideas and strategies in the steps include:

 

>> Universal Design for Learning

>> Class Learning Snapshot

>> Personal Learner Profile

>> Class Learning Toolkit

>> Redesigned learning environments

>> A repository of transformed lessons and projects aligned to CCSS

>> Inquiry-based strategies

>> Skills to choose the appropriate resources and tools to support teaching and learning.

 

As facilitators, we coach you in person and online as you apply the steps in your classroom. After the workshop is over,  you can continue ongoing discussions in an online Community of Practice (the Personalize Learning Collaboratory) with other educators from around the world.

Evolution of the Multidimensional Learning Space Vision

Evolution of the Multidimensional Learning Space Vision | PLE - Marc's Take | Scoop.it

...When we stopped thinking in terms of physical and digital, what began to emerge were discussions that focused purely on learning, teaching, and space deisgn. Our roadmaps for individualized professional development emerged. http://www.ryanbretag.com/blog/?p=2263

Our discussions evolved to learning focused including the move away from “knowledge commons” to “learning commons”. http://www.ryanbretag.com/blog/?p=845

A subtle but important shift. It elevated the importance of space design regardless of physical or digital. The result being the IDEA. http://www.ryanbretag.com/blog/?p=2024

We also started to focus on formal and informal learning, blended learning, and edges. This allowed for a three tiered PD program to emerge.

 

This has and continues to serve us well but there remains a critical piece missing. The digital piece to the learning commons. For me, it is a critical gap and we’ve not been able to fill it with a social networking tool of any value. Yes, we’ve discussed Facebook but the discussions with students, teachers, parents and administrators always left us with no solid answer.

So, this is where I’ve seen it needing to go…

The changing role of L&D: from “packaging” to “scaffolding” plus “social capability building”

The changing role of L&D: from “packaging” to “scaffolding” plus “social capability building” | PLE - Marc's Take | Scoop.it
Rather the future is going to be more about “scaffolding“.  I mean by this, working in partnership with the relevant team or group in the organization to help to provide a framework – ie the infrastructure (platforms, tools etc) as well as the right conditionsfor learning and performance support and improvement to take place.

"And furthermore, rather than trying to design, create, deliver or even “control” what happens there, there is also a need for a focus on “building the new personal and social capabilities” that are are going to be required by the new “connected workers”, in order for them to work and learn effectively in the digitally connected workplace."

I think this is very relevant as we look to create meaningful, connected learning environments that are blended in nature. I'm espeically interested in scaffolding and creating collaborative opportunities for students learning outside of the classroom.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, February 22, 2013 8:22 AM

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

Karin Gitchel's curator insight, February 26, 2013 11:40 AM

This model provides a great starting point for addressing the concerns of change inside both the education department and elsewhere.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | PLE - Marc's Take | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse
