Personalize Learning: Put the "Person" in "Personalization" - 2 views

  • It's time to put the "person" in "personalization" and stop the conversations going in directions that take us off course.
  • It's not about technology. It's not about the test or improving test scores. It's really not about school. It's all about the learner, how they learn best and that what they learn is meaningful and for a purpose.
  • Teachers and learners can work together to develop learning goals and design activities that are authentic and relevant for the learner so they are engaged in learning. Learning has to have a context that learners can grasp and understand.
  • ...9 more annotations...
  • eachers also think they have to teach like a champion because they are the ones responsible for the learning. Don't you think that this is backwards?
  • When we put the focus on each learner and how they can own and drive their learning, then we see engaged, self-directed learners with agency.
  • This is just the beginning of a new world of learning and it's time to put the "Person" back in "Personalization."
  • They probably don't realize that their digital footprint is actually a "digital tattoo" that can never be removed.
  • If we teach as we taught yesterday,we rob our children of tomorrow.”
  • There are companies that frame "personalized learning" as adaptive learning systems using algorithms to choose the right path for learning. So we're going to end this blog emphasizing learners need to be the ones who choose their path with their teacher guiding the process. It is about encouraging learners to have a voice and choice in their learning. It's happening now all over the world.
  • When we focus on learning and not on curriculum, teachers roles change. We still can teach to standards but let's involve learners in the process and give them a voice so they own the learning.

      "It's about learners having a voice and choice in their learning ... leading to engaged and self-directed learners with agency..."
  • They also need to understand who they are, how they learn best, and how to be global digital citizens.
  •  
    A great clarification on what personalized learning is...
