Self-directed. Ultimately, you are responsible for your education. It's time we stop putting the responsibility of education solely on instructors, teachers or administrators.

While it has long been my favored solution for all ills in the education system , with the work described by Sugata Mitra's TED Talk I have become convienced that self-directed learning is absolutely the best systemic learning posture/practice.  This excellent article lists the relevant elements of self-directed learning.

A Framework for Developing Self-Directed Technology Use for Language Learning

A Framework for Developing Self-Directed Technology Use for Language Learning | Self-Learning | Scoop.it

Perceived support from teachers and peers, self-regulation skills, and confidence in the selection and use of technology effectively impacted technology use mainly through strengthening perceived compatibility and usefulness. The findings suggest that attitudinal factors deserve much greater attention than currently given in promoting language learners’ self-directed use of technology.

“Learning is most effective when it’s personalised; it means something to the learner. That happens when people feel they are participants and investors in their own learning, shaping what and how they learn, and able to articulate its value to them.” — Leadbeater, Charles

It is interesting how few classroom teachers and administrators are aware of what self-directed learning is. SDL is an imperative for our children.

Avery's curator insight, March 25, 2013 11:56 PM

My Thoughts:

You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.
