Teaching and Learning - Quotes for Reflection on Why Personalize Learning

Teaching and Learning - Quotes for Reflection on Why Personalize Learning | Self organized learning environments | Scoop.it

An educator from New Zealand has compiled a set of quotes around teaching and learning that are reflective of why we should personalize learning.  A few are selected here and begins with this graphic from Dr. Seuss, "Oh, the places you'll go!"  Is this quote something we would want students to be thinking about each day?

 

From the author:

"Students are born with a powerful desire to learn. Everything we do as parents and teachers must ensure that this powerful desire is kept alive. If there were to be one thing to be continually assessed it would be this desire..."

 

'We should turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.' - John Holt

 

'All human beings are born with unique gifts. The healthy functioning community depends on realizing the capacity to develop each gift'. - Peter Senge

 

'what a child can do today with assistance, she will be able to do by herself tomorrow'. - Lev Vygotsky

 

The principle goal of education is to create men and woman who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done'. - Jean Piaget

 

'We are shaped and fashioned by what we love' - Goethe

 

'You cannot teach anybody anything. You can only help them discover it within themselves.' - Galileo

The textbook should be active and interactive. It both reflects and magnifies the learner, the teacher, and their world – and it adapts to its interactions with each. It does not respond with a “right” or a “wrong.” Instead, it causes the reader to say, “that worked” or “that didn’t work.” The textbook will also contrive long-term narrative-puzzles that reach other readers, building communities of mutual concern.
