How effective is schooling in developing skills for self-directed learning, including t... - 2 views

  • Peter Drucker (2000:8) suggests:

    "In a few hundred years, when the history of our time will be written from a long-term perspective, it is likely that the most important event historians will see is not technology, not the Internet, not e-commerce.  It is an unprecedented change in the human condition.  For the first time - literally - substantial and rapidly growing numbers of people have choices.  For the first time, they will have to manage themselves.  And society is totally unprepared for it."

  • This paper argues that the key issue is the self-managed individual.
  • Self-direction within the learner is a significant prerequisite for the individual's ability to manage ongoing post-school education.  Individuals are required to exercise choice in what, when, where and how they learn.

  • The goal of the educational process is to produce self-directed, lifelong learners.  Many current education practices in public schools and universities however, do more to perpetuate dependency than to create self direction (Grow, 1991, p. 127).  
  • Knowles believes that all adults are capable of self-directed learning, but are constrained by their prior conditioning as passive recipients of transmitted information (Hatcher, 1997)
  • Participants reported a substantial (high or medium) degree of confidence in themselves as learners (93.8%), said they were self motivated (92%), and could work independently with little direction (91.8%).  However, nearly one-third (30.8%) said they were not capable of self-directed learning, with only fourteen percent strongly agreeing that they were capable of self-directed learning.   In other words, respondents in the sample seem confident working under the supervision of a teacher, but not under their own supervision.
  • This culture of teacher dependence has its roots in a highly structured and teacher centred/controlled curriculum in schools.
  • Grow (1991) argues that being a dependent learner is not a defect, but it can become a serious limitation.  Becoming an adult does not automatically make one capable of self-directed learning.  Skills and dispositions for self-directed learning have to be learned/acquired to support lifelong learning whether it is through flexible learning or more traditional modes.
  • There is a strong attitude in schools that students are not mature enough for self-direction and so teacher/school direction is continued.  Without opportunity, particularly freedom to make decisions, maturity and self direction cannot be developed.  Schools need to take greater risk.
  • The studies indicate poor levels of readiness for and disposition to self-directed learning.  There is a large dependency on the teacher as the manager and director of learning with little evidence of transforming ownership and self-management to the learner.
  • The way we are does not work very well in relation to the most essential of all enabling skills - self-direction.  The solutions are not simply about teaching the skills.  They are relatively simple.   The concern lies with developing young peoples' dispositions towards owning and managing their own learning and being sufficiently adaptable to recognise learning needs and access the learning required.

    Discusión sobre estudios realizados en Australia a finales de los 90, en relación con la capacidad de auo-dirección (en términos de aprendzaje) de una muestra de jóvenes universitarios. El panorama que muestra no es muy alentador, pero sirve como espejo para reflexionar respecto al rol que juegan tanto docentes como instituciones en el desarrollo de la autonomía y las habilidades de aprendizaje autodirigido.

    "En la siguiente entrevista nos acercamos a una de sus experiencias en el campo educativo, el proyecto "Comunidad de Aprendizaje de INTL 2.0", en el que exploró de forma pionera la utilización de blogs para estructurar el aprendizaje de una materia universitaria."
    Me parece que es una experiencia similar a la de DocTIC.
