Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013

Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013 | Social Media Resources & e-learning |

Teachers and learners of all ages are connecting more than ever. In 2013, we will see teachers expanding their Personal Learning Networks (PLN) using social media. They will be telling more stories and sharing their journeys as they personalize learning. Learners will be using mobile devices for learning in and out of school. We will be seeing learners involved in more global collaborative projects in 2013.

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

#7. Learner Voice and Choice: The expert learner has a voice and choice in their learning.

They self-regulate and drive their learning. We know this takes time and developed the Three Stages of Personalized Learning.


Stage One is teacher-centered with learner voice and choice. Moving from a traditional or legacy approach of teaching to encouraging learner's to have a voice in how they learn and a choice in how they express what they know is a huge culture shift for schools. 


Because more teachers and learners will be more connected than ever, we will hear their voice. In 2013, look for more YouTube Channels of teachers with example lessons that include how learners have a voice and choice in their learning.

The future outlined here would seem to be achievable but can students really be trusted to "own" their learning?

I like this statement "It is time to bring back inquiry and encourage questions that have no right answers."

We're halfway through the year, how well did we do on these predictions so far?

How Google Builds Its Maps—and What It Means for the Future of Everything

How Google Builds Its Maps—and What It Means for the Future of Everything | Social Media Resources & e-learning |

An exclusive look inside Ground Truth, the secretive program to build the world's best accurate maps.


Behind every Google Map, there is a much more complex map that's the key to queries but hidden from view. The deep map contains the logic of places: their no-left-turns and freeway on-ramps, speed limits and traffic conditions. This is the data that Google uses to navigate you from point A to point B.

Last week, Google showed me the internal map and demonstrated how it was built- the first time the company has let anyone see how the project it calls GT, or "Ground Truth," actually works.

Google opened up at a key moment in its evolution. The company began as an online search company, but then the mobile world exploded. Now, where you're searching from has become almost as important as what you're searching for. Google responded by creating an operating system, brand, and ecosystem that has become the only significant rival to Apple's iOS.

And for good reason. If Google's mission is to organize all the world's information, the most important challenge -- far larger than indexing the web -- is to take the world's physical information and make it accessible and useful...


Read the entire article for a fascinating look at how Google utilizes mapping systems, geo data, mobile technology, and visual representation to manage massive amounts of data from varying sources, including one of the most important to the success of Google Maps- human intelligence.
