Here's a wonderful example of a secondary school that allows students to take control of their learning = personalizing learning. 

Debra Walker's curator insight, August 20, 2015 3:34 PM

I was fortunate in primary and secondary school.  I had empassioned teachers and administrators, and a family that supported and fostered my curiosity and a healthy respect for learning.  Not all have that fortune. 

Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, September 23, 2015 8:54 AM

Peter Hutton desgined and runs a school in which students make the most important decisions about their learning: what to study, when and with whom. There are no grade levels, no "periods" in the day, and the staff is co-hired with students. It's been incredibly successful!

Personalize Learning: Focus on the Learner Not Technology

Personalize Learning: Focus on the Learner Not Technology | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
In a personalized learning environment, learners actively participate in their learning. They have a voice in what they are learning based on how they learn best. Learners have a choice in how they demonstrate what they know, what paths they take to learn, and provide evidence of their learning.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, June 22, 2015 2:55 PM
In a personalized learning environment, the teacher is the guide on the learner's personal journey. When learners have choices to interact with the content and discuss what they watched, read, and learned, they are actively participating in learning. Encouraging learner voice and choice is the key difference to the other terms: differentiation and individualization. When learners have a voice in how they learn and a choice in how they engage with content and express what they know, they are more motivated to want to learn and own their learning.

The system needs to change from focusing on performance and tests to rethinking the design of teaching and learning around how learners learn best.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, February 15, 2015 1:54 PM

We'd think know what they need to know about learning. But teachers seek professional development for reasons other than hanging out with their bffs. They want to refresh their learning about learning, to learn new strategies, to learn about new research, and to have their instincts affirmed. These fundamentals do much of that.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, February 18, 2015 8:16 AM

The fundamentals listed in this article are easy to do. I suggest trying to incorporate 1 or 2 a month Into your teaching.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, April 1, 2015 11:04 PM

After reading through all 20 fundamentals, it's hard to pick a favorite.  They are all good!  I suggest taking one each day and reflecting on how you use it in your teaching.  If you find you are not using it, find a way to do so.  Try it for a week before going on to the next one.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, November 27, 2014 3:03 PM

This model describes 4 levels of mastery using measurements of competence and consciousness.  As novices, we are in a state of “Unconscious Incompetence”, where we don’t recognize what we need to know.  As we gain knowledge and experience, we transition to “Conscious Incompetence,” where we are aware of what we do not know.  Developing further, the third stage is “Conscious Competence,” where most of us remain.  We have considerable ability and knowledge at our craft, yet it is not automatic; we must still think and act deliberately.  The fourth and final stage is mastery, or “Unconscious Competence”.

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it."

What Minecraft Can Teach You About Pedagogy

by TeachThought Staff

Minecraft is a simple, clumsy-looking little game full of blocky graphics and unclear terms of play. It is essentially a giant sandbox of digital legos that players can do with what they wish–tear stuff down, dig holes, or build dizzying towers of complex design and architecture.

And it’s a perfect analogue for what’s possible in learning.

First off, let’s be clear–it’s a huge, huge hit. Minecraft has sold over 20,000,000 copies to date. It is available for iPad, Android, PC, and Xbox (though sadly, not the PS3), and is quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon. What makes it popular with children is tempting
