"Each time I come across an interesting graphic I make sure it does not pass incognito. All of the  visual graphics I share here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning are  informative and highly insightful. The one below is no exception.

The graphic below features some of the characteristics of digital citizens which also apply to our students. I personally prefer to call them netizens as Howard Rheingold called them in his wonderful book Net Smart: How to Thrive Online. http://ow.ly/luILI ; "

Self-Directed Learning Through A Culture Of “Can”

The long-term output of any school should be not just proficient students, but enabled learners. An “enabled” learner can grasp macro views, uncover micro details, ask questions, plan for new knowledge and transfer thinking across divergent circumstances. This doesn’t happen by content “knowledge holding,” or even by the fire of enthusiasm, but by setting a tone for learning that suggests possibility, and by creating a culture of can.

First, it’s important to realize that a “culture” is comprised of tangible factors (students) and intangible factors (curiosity). It is also ever-present — it exists whether or not we as educators acknowledge it. It precedes formal learning and will last long after that formal learning experience has passed.

9 Digital Learning Tools Every 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Use

9 Digital Learning Tools Every 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Use | Self-Directed Learning - Engaged in my Education | Scoop.it

"The 21st century is a time of rapid change, and while the brain may not be changing (much), the tools we use to feed it are.

This puts the 21st century teacher in a critical spot–of mastering constantly evolving technology and digital learning tools–the same tools their students use every day.

So below, we’ve started with 9 such tools, but this is obviously just scratching the surface. This list is not meant to be exhaustive (obviously), or even authoritative (but rather, subjective)."

27 Actions That Promote Self-Directed Learning | Self-Directed Learning - Engaged in my Education | Scoop.it

"So I'm trying to better understand how people learn--not now they're taught in terms of teaching strategies, but more so learning strategies--only not really strategies...Learning actions, or cognitive actions."

How can we help out students become more self-directed in their learning? What tools can we provide them with to help them become self-directed learners (using 21st century tools and skills)? 

This post provides a list of 27 actions. The post states:

"The big idea is that these kinds of “brain actions” are not only the kinds of tasks you can use to create assignments, but more importantly are the kinds of acts that promote inquiry-based understanding. So rather than start with a topic–fractions, metaphors, or racism–you can simply insist on the cognitive action itself. Learners can choose topics of their own, or you can offer a range of topics."

With that as a background five of the actions are listed below. There is additional material in the post as well as another 22 actions.

* Challenge something

* Test the validity of a model

* Study the relationship between text and subtext

* Critique something

* Transfer a lesson or philosophical stance from one situation to another

Don Berg's curator insight, July 10, 2014 3:53 PM

Interesting how much of challenge it is to distinguish between teaching and learning. That is one of the obstacles to getting self-directed learning to become a mainstream feature in schools.
