How might we develop self-regulated learners? - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    A common question is how do we facilitate the development of independent, self-regulating learners. With an increased focus on the development of dispositional models for learning where the skills and mindset of the learner are crucial, how do we ensure that our learners move from requiring external regulation to a model of internal regulation?

Becoming Learners: Making time for OUR Learning - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    At the heart of all that we do as teachers lies the act of learning. Our hope is that our actions inspire our students to engage in a process that results in their acquisition of new knowledge, mastery of new skills and the development of capacities and dispositions which will prepare them for life beyond our classrooms. Increasingly our focus is on developing the skills and dispositions our students require to become life-long learners. We recognise that in a rapidly changing world, the capacity to take charge of your personal learning journey, to become self-navigating learners is essential.

      For summary activities, I sometimes give students the option to create their own comic strip. Some students choose to pick a different activity because they do not think they are an artist. This would help make everyone feel that they could create their own comic strip summary!

      All these adds might be a bit distracting for students.

      I am a very visual person, and I had a hard time navigating the page with all of the distracting elements. Students so often like to be able to master something so quickly that if they can't, they may choose to not use this.

      This is a great way to integrate differentiation into the classroom, especially for a tiered assignment. If a student struggles to comprehend plot summary, he or she can use this to demonstrate what he/she understood from the text or there could be additional elements added to up the difficulty level.
