Self-Directed Learning Well Explained and 27 Actions | Teaching and Learning with Teachers | Scoop.it

TeachThought.com has a series of posts about self-directed learning by Terry Heick and the staff, well worth a read! “

 

“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.

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.

Imagine getting all of the key notes of the thought leaders in the conference pushed to you in real time. That is why we love Twitter with our conferences.

 

We have found twitter to be a great learning augmentation and support tool for conferences and key leanring events. We use a hashtag and then produce a tweetbook post conference and share with attendees. These community notelbooks are great to recap conferences in blog posts, share learning with people unable to attend, and extend the insights from the conferences.
