Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference?

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

In this age of abundance of information, shifting classroom pedagogy isn't nearly enough to make learning in school more relevant and authentic for the learner. Self-directed learning (andragogy), and self-determined learning (heutagogy) are the ideals necessary in making students "future ready" to live and learn in a web connected world.


While original research applied these concepts to mature learners, it has become apparent that even young children have an abundant capacity for recognizing and directing their own learning. Anyone who has observed toddlers learning how to walk and talk understand the motivation and skill development that quickly develops during these processes.


Considered by some to be on a learning continuum, self-directed learning and self-determined learning have at least one distinct difference. What is this difference, and why should educators care? - See more at: http://rtschuetz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/self-directed-vs-self-determined.html?spref=tw#sthash.oSVChVeN.dpuf

Dorote Lucci's curator insight, February 3, 2015 12:56 PM

Great insights- this can be applied to other fields as well such as learning techniques to modulate stress and anxiety

Shafeeq Husain's curator insight, February 3, 2015 8:59 PM

Since "upwards of ninety percent of our learning will occur outside formal educational settings" (Jennings, 2010), in the age of abundance of information, students should be motivated to reflect on how they are learning. That is what is self-directed learning

I like it when social media can help guide a project for a student and a teacher. Check out these other platforms that are being utilized For education. #ufglobal

Students may not want to befriend their teacher on Facebook, but that doesn't mean social media is out of the question for school assignments.
