Justin shares 5 ways to create learner-centered classrooms. What a great way to start the new year by putting the learner at the center!

 

1. A student-centered classroom allows students to be an integral part of the assessment development process.

 

2. A student-centered classroom focuses on finding solutions to real-world problems.

 

3. A student-centered classroom is not about what the teacher is doing or what the teacher has done; it's about what the students are doing and what the students can do in the future.

 

4. A student-centered classroom embraces the notion that there are multiple ways to accomplish an individual task.

 

5. A student-centered classroom firmly believes that there is a partnership and a strong level of trust between educators and students.

The Missing Piece: The Learner - Moving to a Learner-Centered Environment

The Missing Piece: The Learner - Moving to a Learner-Centered Environment | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Over the last decade conversations have been about analyzing the data to improve test scores.  The time has come to change the conversation to "The Learner" who has been the missing piece.  Once we understand the learner and how they learn, then transformation of our educational systems can begin.

 

The learner needs to be part of the daily conversations from now on:  no longer The Missing Piece.

 

Questions to consider when moving to a learner-centered environment:

 

> Who are the learners today?
> How do learners learn best?
> How do we meet the needs of the diverse learners in the classroom?
> What is the new role of the teacher?
> How is the role of the learner changing?
> Why is there a culture shift with these new roles?
> How can teachers and learners be partners in lesson design?
> How will teachers prepare to be the guide and partner in learning?
> How will learners express their understanding of what they know?
> What learning environment will be created for these learners?

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

What does it mean when you say 21st century learning? This post lists nine characteristics of 21st century learning and provides a rationale. What makes this notable is "the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the 'classic' approach to 'good learning' than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore."

The nine characteristics are in the diagram above and listed below:

Learner-centered, Media-driven, Personalized, Tranfer-by-Design, Visibly Relevant, Data-Rich, Adaptable, Interdependent and Diverse.
