Additional Book Details
Learn from Kids, Peers, and the World to Transform Professional Learning
What can kids teach us about educational practices? It turns out, plenty. PD is evolving into professional learning (PL), where personalized experiences focus on goals and outcomes, rather than seat time. In Evolving Learner, successful PL is framed through three critical sources: learning from kids, from peers, and from the world. Woven throughout the book are tangible connections to cycles of inquiry where a harmonious balance is the ultimate goal when students are engaged in inquiry for deeper learning and teachers are engaged in a parallel process to improve their practice.
The authors’ unique framework shifts away from factory model "PD" and transforms it into experiences tailored to kids’ and adult learners’ specific needs. Clear strategies for accomplishing PL are presented through
A framework where both students and teachers are active agents of learning
Cycles of inquiry to empower students to become the owners of learning
Techniques to make thinking visible for teachers and students
Cutting edge coverage of applying technology to professional learning including the use of social media, gamification, and digital badges
The time is right to reclaim ownership of your professional learning: Evolving Learner is an essential guide for embarking on this journey.
