Collaboration for Personalized Learning

It is part of a series about the Building Blocks for Personalized Learning. Although it may seem unusual to connect collaboration to the practice of personalized learning, it is important to remember that students don’t learn within a vacuum. In a personalized learning environment, teachers can help students discover what individual roles they can successfully assume when collaborating with others.

A Comprehensive Framework For Student Motivation

TeachThought - Learn better.

While the terms are sometimes misunderstood–and risk becoming cliche as we continue to talk about them topically rather than specifically–student motivation and student engagement are prime movers in the learning process. If we can nail down those factors–those characteristics that drive student motivation–we can, at worst, be more attentive to them as we design assessments, lessons, units, and even learning models.

Edsurge

In mission statements across the country, references to personalized learning abound, hanging proudly from schoolhouse walls. Laying the groundwork for success Ten years ago, NPS was the second district in the state to implement a “Bring Your Own Device” policy (BYOD), going 1:1 for all students in 2010. Some might say that our district personalizes education using these resources, and they would be right, but that isn’t the secret to our success.

“The biggest challenge is parents believing in the school’s vision of digital transformation.” – Paramjeet Kaur Dhillon, India

Daily Edventures

It’s been one year since Paramjeet Kaur Dhillon’s school decided to implement 1:1 learning, and while it’s been a huge success for the students and teachers, the road to 1:1 was anything but easy. Still, after long hours of discussion and deliberations, the school adopted the policy of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). The learners now bring their own devices, to learn through the digital platform. This developed values in me during my school days which became lifelong learning.

Personalizing the learning experience

Neo LMS

Each student has an individual way of learning and their own pace when it comes to addressing different subjects. Wouldn't it be wonderful if teachers could meet all individual learning needs for each student? A personalized learning approach would come with a shift of perspective, changing the focus from the educational system to the students, giving the latter more control over their learning experience and connecting learning with their interests, talents and passions.

Navigating Your Journey to Remote Learning

This is not to say that they are unwilling to learn or embrace significant change in this area. Don''t wait another second to start building a Personal Learning Network (PLN).

Are You a Critical Consumer?

A Principal's Reflections

In fact, I for one benefitted greatly as a principal when I learned about something shared on social media and then either implemented or adapted it in a way that bolstered the transformation efforts at my school. As we explored moving towards Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD ) in 2010, I was able to glean powerful insights and evidence of efficacy from the Forsyth County School District in Georgia. Going BYOD sounded like a great idea based on what I had either read or saw online.

Unearthing the Why

A Principal's Reflections

If he or she does not truly understand why they are learning what is being taught the chances of improving outcomes and success diminishes significantly. What and how we assess carries little to no weight in the eyes of our students if they don’t understand and appreciate the value of the learning experience. Relevance should be a non-negotiable in any learning task. If a student doesn’t know why he or she is learning something that is on us.
