Personalized Learning - It's All About Learning

Personalized Learning - It's All About Learning | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it

T. Henriksen includes excerpts from an #edchat that took place recently.

 

The great debate in education in British Columbia seems to be Personalized Learning or Personalized Education. The focus for the chat was based on the following question:

 

“What do we mean by the personalization of education & is it desirable & achievable today?”

 

Many of the participants shared their thought and tweets on the meaning of Personalized Learning.  Here are just a few:

 

"To me, personalized learning is really about choice: choice in topics (or strand of a topic), choice in how students want to learn about a topic, and choice in how students want to demonstrate their learning."

 

tweet by @stephe1234 “Student engagement increases when goal setting, passion based learning, making a contribution, and ownership are high.”

 

"Some questions for you….

> What does Personalized (or personal) learning mean to you?

> What is necessary to make this a reality in today’s schools?

> What about the curriculum?"

 

IMHO (BB)

Personalized education implies something done to learners. Either by the teacher, the curriculum or from the powers above. Adaptive courseware refers to algorithms adjusting to how a learner responds to a question based on previous questions. The curriculum does not take into account how the learner learns best.

 

Personalized learning refers to the type of learning environment the teacher designs that encourages learners to take ownership of their learning.

 

Personal learning implies the learner owns and drives their learning. The teacher is a partner in learning guiding them as they meet their fullest potential.

Blended Learning is Not the Only Way to Personalize Learning

Blended Learning is Not the Only Way to Personalize Learning | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it

Blended learning means offering a combination of face-to-face and online learning opportunities to learners. Blending these learning opportunities can contribute to personalizing learning. However, blended learning is not the only approach that personalizes learning. Personalizing learning starts with the learner. This means that learners have a stake in their learning by taking responsibility for their learning. When they own and drive their learning, they are more motivated to want to learn. In a learning environment that starts with the learner, teacher and learner roles change.

 

The research at the Students at the Center (studentsatthecenter.org) wrote nine reports on student-centered learning. Eric Toshalls, Ed.D., and Michael Nakkula, Ed.D. in one report, wrote the research on “Learning Theory: Motivation, Engagement and Student Voice” that described:

 

The Trifecta of Student Centered Learning

Motivation - Without motivation, there is no push to learn
Engagement - Without engagement, there is no way to learn
Voice - Without voice, there is no authenticity in learning

 

“For students to create a new knowledge, to succeed academically, and to develop into healthy adults, they require each of these experiences.” -Toshalls and Nakkula

 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
Personalized learning as described in the research at Brown is built on the framework of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) that is based upon decades of brain-research and neuroscience of individual differences, human variability and on how we learn. UDL is often thought about how it relates to special education, but to dispel that myth, the UDL principles is about how we understand how every learner learns.

Transformational Teacher: Chris Edwards on Personalized Learning

Transformational Teacher: Chris Edwards on Personalized Learning | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it

Chris Edwards' shared in our interview why he decided to personalize learning and the results he has experienced with his learners: engaged and motivated!

 

Q. Why did you decide to personalize learning?

A. I decided to personalise learning in my classroom about a year ago. I watched a TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson (the king of creativity) speaking about how he believes that our current education system is killing creativity. What made me think the most was when he said this: “Shakespeare was in someone’s class once, right?” And I thought wow! I have never considered who I may have in my class! When I started thinking in this way, it changed everything. It made me realise that the most important thing was ensuring that every individual child in my class, realised and reached their full potential.

 

Q. How are learners in your class changing?

A. The learners in my class are changing in a very noticeable way. The learners in my class are no longer passive. They are engaged in their own learning and are motivated. Most importantly, they are learning to be resourceful and resilient. Learning anything is an inherently frustrating process.

 

Read this insiteful interview and take a look a the pictures of Chris' personalized learning environment where his learners are thriving!

Personalised Learning - Does personalized learning develop deeper learning experiences?

In this topic area, we take a look at these essential dimensions to achieving success in personalized learning:

 

Deeper Learning

Learning where student voice and choice are top priorities; where education is more responsive to students’ needs, interests and aspirations; where they’re given the skills and experiences vital to learning in the 21st Century.

 

Using the ‘deeps’ you’ll find routes to achieving personalized learning for your students – let them help you design educational activities and take greater responsibility for their learning.

Personalize Learning: Toolkit

Personalize Learning: Toolkit | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it

How do you personalize learning? First you need to know what personalized learning is. Here is a new site that provides resources, research, models, examples, and stories. This page provides a toolkit that can help your organization begin personalizing learning to meet the needs of all learners. 

 

Check out the chart that compares Personalization, Differentiation, and Indivdiualization. You can download the chart and a report that explains the details of the chart.  The Three Stages of Personalized Learning Environments can help you determine where you are in personalizing learning. 

 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides the framework in personalizing learning for all learners. UDL also guides the design of the Personal Learner Profile[TM]. It provides the UDL lens to select the appropriate tools for the Personal Learning Backpack[TM]. UDL guides how Personalized Learning meets the Common Core.

The Connected Learner in a PLE

The Connected Learner in a PLE | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it

We are all learners. We are connected to each other and innovative learning experiences that we never thought were possible before. It doesn't matter how old you are, where you live, and what you want to learn, you can connect to people, resources, and courses so you, the learner, can learn what you want when you want to. This means what we call "school" is different. Teachers and learners are different. Roles change. This is a huge culture shift.

 

The information from our chart Personalization vs Differentiation vs Individualization chart is about being a Connected Learner in a Personal Learning Environment (PLE).

 

> starts with the learner

> connects with interests, passions, and aspirations

> learners actively participate in the design of their learning

> learners have a voice and choice on what they learn

> different objectives for each learner

> learner selects appropriate technology and resources to support their learning

> learners build a network of peers, teachers, and others to guide and support their learning

> competency-based models where the learner demonstrates mastery

> assessment AS learning

> teachers develop capacity to create independent learners who set goals, monitor progress, and reflect on learning
