It is Personal and Dangerous Now

It is Personal and Dangerous Now | Personalized Learning | Scoop.it
Personalized Learning is not about feeding information to kids via adaptive learning systems. We already did that and it didn't work then. It is all about the learner owning and driving their learning.

Barbara Bray's curator insight, January 1, 2014 3:25 PM

The marketing strategy of adaptive learning systems is that of 24/7 services that you can access at any time, in any place and at any pace. Education has adopted this language to reduce costs with business-like customization and streamlined productivity. The expectation is for a flexible education system that will also be more efficient and cost effective.

Examples of UDL in Practice from UVM

Examples of UDL in Practice from UVM | Personalized Learning | Scoop.it

UVM has done an excellent job of presenting examples of UDL in practice, specific to the UDL Guidelines. These examples illustrate instructional flexibility to support learning diversity!

 

"The goal of education in the 21st century is not simply the mastery of knowledge. It is the mastery of learning. Education should help turn novice learners into expert learners-individuals who know how to learn, who want to learn, and who, in their own highly individual ways, are well prepared for a lifetime of learning. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach that addresses and redresses the primary barrier to making expert learners of all students: inflexible, one-size-fits-all curricula that raise unintentional barriers to learning. Learners with disabilities are most vulnerable to such barriers, but many students without disabilities also find that curricula are poorly designed to meet their learning needs.

 

Diversity is the norm, not the exception, wherever individuals are gathered, including schools. When curricula are designed to meet the needs of the broad middle at the exclusion of those with different abilities, learning styles, backgrounds, and even preferences, they fail to provide all individuals with fair and equal opportunities to learn. Universal Design for Learning helps meet the challenge of diversity by suggesting flexible instructional materials, techniques, and strategies that empower educators to meet these varied needs. A universally designed curriculum is designed from the outset to meet the needs of the greatest number of users, making costly, time-consuming, and after-the-fact changes to curriculum unnecessary."

UDL Resource - A New Website by Paul Hamilton

UDL Resource - A New Website by Paul Hamilton | Personalized Learning | Scoop.it

Paul Hamilton has created a new website that focuses on Universal Design for Learning (UDL). To quote his intro: 

"This site hosts information about Universal Design for Learning, and shares free and low-cost digital tools
that facilitate a UDL approach to learning, as well as tools to support learners with access challenges."

You will find information on UDL, a section on access as well as sections on representation, expression and engagement (the cornerposts of UDL), and handouts. 
This website is a work in progress, so be sure to return periodically to look for new ideas!

We are all learners. The cartoon speaks volumes.

What personalized learning is and how it can be optimized. Now that learning is available to "the masses", what is preventing "the masses" from taking advantage of learning opportunities?

Don Breedwell's curator insight, March 26, 2014 8:47 PM

I like to see good change and this looks like the right direction. Going to make the changes in vocabulary now.

Digital spaces for learning and engagement: Are You Behind?

Digital spaces for learning and engagement:  Are You Behind? | Personalized Learning | Scoop.it

Great questions:  

1.  Does your current vision of what you want learning to look like include learning in digital spaces?

2.  Do you have/use  school supported on-line spaces?

3.  Do you allow student devices?

4.  Do you design with  mobile learning in mind?

 

Vision. Spaces. Devices. Access everything, anywhere, on anything.

 

Do you have that?

 

If not, you’re behind.
