The Future of Learning, Networked Society - Ericsson

The Future of Learning, Networked Society - Ericsson | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"Can ICT redefine the way we learn in the Networked Society? Technology has enabled us to interact, innovate and share in whole new ways. This dynamic shift in mindset is creating profound change throughout our society. The Future of Learning looks at one part of that change, the potential to redefine how we learn and educate. Watch as we talk with world renowned experts and educators about its potential to shift away from traditional methods of learning based on memorization and repetition to more holistic approaches that focus on individual students' needs and self expression."

Jim Lerman's insight:

A particularly thought-provoking video due to the outstanding people chosen to speak in it. It was produced by Ericsson in 2012, so it is relatively current. Appearances by Stepehn Heppell, Sugatra Mitra, Seth Godin, Jose Ferreira, Lois Mbugua, Margaret Kositany and Dephne Koller. Well worth the time to watch. Think about what setting you can show this in and the types of conversations that it can stimulate.

Context, as Gregory Bateson pointed out, is the important idea.

David Truss: Personalization and Responsibility

David Truss: Personalization and Responsibility | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

David Truss ponts out that personalization is about the learner taking responsibility for their learning.  He includes that educators are also learners and substitutes "educators" in a paragraph in our report where we explain the chart on "Personalization vs. Differentiation vs. Individualization".

 

"Going back to Bray & McClaskey, have a look at the last sentence I quoted above, only switch ‘learners’ to ‘educators’: “When [educators] reflect on their own learning and must communicate it to others, they are intensifying their understanding about a topic, their learning strengths, and the areas in which they need to develop further.”

 

We need to personalize the learning for our educators and our students… seeing both first and foremost as learners. We can’t cookie-cutter our professional development to teachers and expect meaningful results. We can’t evaluate students based on tests with easily Googleable answers. We can develop a sense of learner responsibility by personalizing learning, making it meaningful and making it work that matters.

 

Finally, if we decide to look at educators and students as learners first, then we also need to recognize the responsibility that comes with being a learner. So much of what I read about now is about things ‘we need to do’ to support the learner. But be they educators or students, learners need first to understand the importance of their own role in learning. Personalization isn’t just about catering to a learner, it is also about learner autonomy and thus learner responsibility."

 

Thank you David in making the connections and in sharing your Manifesto!

Personalization in Schools | Students at the Center | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"Susan Yonezawa, Larry McClure, and Makeba Jones evaluate formal attempts to personalize U.S. secondary education and assess the research on teacher-student relationships and their impact. With a focus on programs for low-income and minority youth, the authors examine school reforms that have incorporated personalization. To improve student achievement and emotional well-being significantly, they conclude, increasing personalization must be the goal of a widespread, sustained organizational effort."

For the Love of Learning: The Politics of Personalization in the 21st Century

For the Love of Learning: The Politics of Personalization in the 21st Century | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"In David Hargreaves’ view, personalized learning represents a larger movement that needs to be put forward on several fronts to (re)shape teaching and learning. His nine gateways to personalizing learning are assessment for learning; learning to learn; student voice; curriculum; new technologies; school design and organization; advice and guidance; mentoring and coaching; and workforce development (Hargreaves 2006)."

 

"Personalized learning is often represented as a novel approach to enhancing the pedagogical practices of educators to broadly reorganize schooling in the 21st century. The personalized (re)shaping of teaching and learning is generally to be achieved through assessing the strengths of individuals and then addressing the specific needs and learning styles of each student in a school community."

Infographic: Personalization vs Individualization vs Differentiation

Infographic: Personalization vs Individualization vs Differentiation | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
When learning is personal, teaching and learning changes. Teachers' and learners' roles change. Last January, we created a chart comparing Personalization vs Individualization vs Differentiation and a report that explained the difference between these three terms including teacher-centered vs. learner-centered approaches. This chart has been downloaded tens of thousands of times from all over the world and prompted discussions around some of these questions:


> What does personalized or personal learning mean to you?

> How do you see teachers' and learners' roles changing?

> How does a school or district know they are Ready to Transform learning?

> What is Assessment AS Learning?

> Can personalization help close the achievement gap?

> Where are the conversations, models, and examples of personalizing learning?

 

These questions were part of an interview from Patricia Gomes, a reporter from Porvir in Brazil who wrote an article August 12, 2012 about the chart and resulted in an article and infographic in Portuguese.
