What does Learning Look Like?

"A while ago, I created this poster A Tale of Two Classrooms.  It wasn't meant as a statement of Classroom B is best.  It wasn't even meant as a statement of Classroom A is awful.  It was meant as a representation of Classroom A and B."

Great compare & contrast- I believe "A" emphasis is on teaching, while "B" emphasis is on learning -and sets the stage for personal learning.

 

Stephen Gwilliam's curator insight, January 8, 2013 4:15 PM

Krissy Venosdale revised her Classroom A and Classroom B poster recently to represent "What does Learning Look Like". Some of these Classroom B descriptors indicate a learner-centered environment. What are some other descriptions that you would include?

 

Here are some of Krissy's thoughts behind Learning:

 

"Learning is a journey.  Our kids change. The world changes.  We change as teachers.  This morning, I made a revised version of Classroom A versus Classroom B.  As someone pointed out, it’s not a black and white issue. There is so much grey and so much individual choice.  I’m not saying A or B is better for everyone. I’m saying you’ve gotta think and really understand what you want learning to look like in your classroom."

Sir Ken Robinson on “Personalized Learning”

Sir Ken Robinson on “Personalized Learning” | student centric education | Scoop.it

Sir Ken Robinson has spent some time in British Columbia as they move to a personalized learning model. From one of those recent visits, here is what he said about Personalized Learning:

“Personalized learning, to me, is the process of contouring learning to the individuals that you’re dealing with, recognizing that we all have different strengths and weaknesses, different interests [and] different ways of learning."


“It isn’t that everyone has to learn different things, although eventually our interests will take us in different directions,” he continued. “But in terms of the things we want all people to learn … personalized learning is finding the best ways to engage with people with different interests, passions and ways of thinking."

 

It’s what good teachers have always known, he added. “That their job is not to teach subjects, but to teach students.”

Tony Vengrove's curator insight, February 25, 2:48 PM

I just love this excerpt:

"I remember when I was running the national commission on creativity, education and the economy in the U.K., the Secretary of State there said, "We're very committed to creativity in education but we've got to get literacy and numeracy right first." And I said, this is just a basic misunderstanding. It's like saying we're going to bake a cake and if it works out, then we'll put the eggs in. That's not how it works. If you want people to be literate, you have to get them passionate about reading and that's a creative job. To think of it as an afterthought or in conflict of the core purposes, is a misconception of what creativity is. Creative leaders get that. And if they don't they will."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 25, 6:43 PM

We do not have to look at private industry to find creativity. Classrooms are full of teachers and students who are creative.

Mentors & Global Citizens

Mentors & Global Citizens | student centric education | Scoop.it

April 22, 2012 was earth day and it got me thinking about giving freely so others can learn. I have been providing free online workshops for many years. I believe that we can all give a little for free. Giving is receiving. Our lives will be fuller and our pockets larger if we unite forces and help others get off the ground. We can provide tutoring so others can get the jobs they need to care for themselves and their families. We need you!

 

I would like to invite you to a discussion with Daniel Bassill and myself on how to make it happen. Daniel Bassill has been organizing non-school tutor/mentor programs in inner city high poverty neighborhoods in the USA for over 35years. We need your help to reach countries around the globe. Together, you and I can make a difference by making earth date everyday. Online learning is the key and IT4ALL Moodle is the place. With your help, we can create courses and continue making them free for those who cannot afford the tuition. In addition, if you create and facilitate a course, you can receive other courses that IT4ALL provides for free: http://www.integrating-technology.org

 

Enroll in the free online conversation event with Daniel Bassill and I on Conversation on WizIQ on April 25, 2012 at 11 AM EST: http://tinyurl.com/wiziq-conversation. Please check the following link for the exact time in your area: http://tinyurl.com/bndgagy

 

Remember, you can learn for free, by contributing to educating others from around the globe. Enroll in the live discussion, now
