Barbara Pazey's insight:

This really fits the disability studies perspective of teaching and learning---student-centered rather than teacher-centered and much more open to student advocacy and voice.

מאמר מעניין וחשוב על הנושא של ניהול עצמי בלמידה ובכלל כחלק ממכלול של מיומנויות נוספות על המוכרות לנו במאה ה-21

Tasia Thompson's curator insight, January 24, 2016 10:03 PM

We try to teach this as educators, but self regulation is also a skill most parents  try desperately to teach their teens and young adult college kids so that they will have a fighting chance to be successful/"make it" in this competitive world.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 23, 2015 1:15 AM

In this study, the author asks students with disabilities 1)  What do you like about school and some of your classes 2) Tell me what you don't like about school and some of your classes and 3) If you could learn about anything you wanted, what would that learning be? The common themes among answers: : (a) critical thinking, (b) problem solving, (c) interpersonal skills, (d) work ethic, (e) teamwork/collaboration, (f) communication, and/or (g) creativity. Some specific responses included: 

Hands-onProject-based/activity-based/simulated learning opportunitiesUse of technology and social networkingCreative projects, creative writing, experimental or experiential learningChallenging classes that will "bust my head" and "make me learn"Relevance to students' lives and future interestsLearn knowledge and skills to prepare them for a careerHow to survive in the real worldKnow how to present oneselfUnderstand how to work with other peopleHow to negotiate and make or broker dealsLess "book work" and "work sheets"Learn how to write and think criticallyDiscuss ideas with one another to think critically and solve problemsStudent choice and autonomyFlexible classroom structureGroup workTeacher explains the content or information in terms students can understandTeacher presents critical information necessary for them to work on their ownTeacher does not "throw it all at them at once" and "breaks it down"Teacher who can "get down to our level" and "tell us how it really is"Teacher who "pushes us to do our best" and "don't slack"
What we can easily conclude from this is there is no 'one size fits all' in special education.We have to plan for individual students.  We provide a continuum of services and programs to meet unique learning needs through out-of-the-box thinking, flexibility and adaptability.
