"Educators seeking professional-development opportunities these days can choose from a vast menu of technology-related options that range from bite-size to entrée. But those who create and use this type of PD say they're still struggling with how to officially recognize teachers' efforts, particularly when it comes to the small-dose, on-demand versions available."

The Stages of the Learning Independence Continuum

The Stages of the Learning Independence Continuum | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

The Institute @ CESA #1 is introducing the stages of the Learning Independence Continuum in their blog following the release of the white paper, The Learning Independence Continuum.  In their first post they provide an overview with the remaining posts focusing on one of the stages of the continuum.

 

> Motivation

> Engagement

> Self-efficacy

> Ownership

> Independence

 

"In personalized learning environments, learning activities will fall all along this continuum – at times it’s more important for the educator to drive the work, at others, the learner will take the driver’s seat. However, in order for this to happen, all of the characteristics along the continuum should be developed and nurtured in each learner."

Angie Tarasoff's comment, August 20, 2012 8:34 PM
I wonder if there isn't another stage here - or maybe it's not on the continuum at all, but somewhere else: interdependence.

I'm starting to think we don't typically learn anything independently - but through interactions with other people, or the knowledge someone else has created.
Barbara Bray's comment, August 20, 2012 11:27 PM
Angie - Yes! You are right - interdependence. How to collaborate and work in teams. There is a large push to create independent learners and expert learners. Now you have me thinking.

Fundamental Considerations For Designing M-Learning Solutions (Part 1) by @MayraAixaVillar #astd

Fundamental Considerations For Designing M-Learning Solutions (Part 1) by @MayraAixaVillar #astd | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

Last week, I described mobile devices as multitasking tools that enable users to seamlessly collaborate and communicate with others, to consume and create content, and to research and manage information.These learning activities help the new generation of connected learners make sense of the world around them as they navigate and apply knowledge on the go. As mobile devices provide a personal interactive experience with content in a new and appropriate context of use, it is important to consider the following matters when designing anytime, anywhere learning experiences.
