NMC Beyond the Horizon > Focus on Data | AERA Design and Technology Sig (SIG DAT) | Scoop.it
There is an increasing interest in using new sources of data for personalizing the learning experience, for ongoing formative assessment of learning, and for performance measurement; this interest is spurring the development of a relatively new field — data-informed learning and assessment. In this online event, three higher ed thought leaders will share insights behind their innovative use of data. The program will also focus on leveraging data to build better pedagogies, empower students to take an active part in their learning, target at-risk student populations, and assess factors affecting completion and student success.

The student as the primary focus does not create an egocentric, consumer-based perspective; rather, the student is the agent of learning and responsible for both the learning process and the outcomes.

'The transference of the teaching role to facilitator, the designed personalised learning structures will overcome the traditional units, credit hours, and seat time and the limitations of walls in buildings.'

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | AERA Design and Technology Sig (SIG DAT) | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Barbara McCombs's insight:

We must always remember that if we do not let students have a voice and choice, they will not own what happens to them regardless of how superior others think the system is that they designed.  For students to be self-regulated learners, it is essential for them to taake personal responsibility via choices.  When they do, we see engged learning and higher oerformance than we may have thought possible for all learners.

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education

Logan Laplante is a 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead.

Barbara McCombs's insight:

The uniqueness of each learner is recognized in most traditional educational systems.  What I see as a big policy and practice challenge is to give voice to the parents and students who know that the paradigm fails to reward those who have the skills and courage to step outside the one size fits all content and accountability mindset.  Those who take this plunge whether by homeschooling or virtual learning opportunities outside traditional education models have the quality relationships with each learner that can provide the personalization to awaken the natural lifelong learning spark that dwells in each of us.  Sir Ken Robinson reminds us that finding the key for motivating each learner is mainly a function of our willingness to recognize each learner’s voice and need for self-determination.  A balanced sharing of control within caring and rigorous learning experiences lets each learner show his or her creativity in going beyond expectations of any standardized curriculum or instructional approach.
