Transcript of Personalised learning at Downend

Online Degrees Create "base" model graduates. If you HAVE a college degree, ponder this ... Separate the "courses" from the other customizations of "the college experience."

Did you enjoy taking the courses or just tolerate them as a necessary means to acquire the learning?

"out" of education is more
than just increased knowledge.
We hope for a personal "customization"
of each student as they are exposed to ideas,
diversity, experiences and opportunities. Some students still leave college with nothing but a "base model" ... but most leave with some add-ons. Content

Aesthetic Engagement Open Education Model Airplane Model We process students in "batches" The academic year takes off and lands at
a set time. We take off whether you are on board or not. If there are TOO many empty seats, the flight is cancelled. Even if the "route" is more expensive, it's important to offer it. (i.e. Nursing) Some "routes" are subsidized. (i.e. graduate education) Whilst this makes a logical sense, we know there is not yet the structures that enable this We could teach students according to where they are academically, not their age group Open Textbooks decide Change
is necessary what changes have made a difference to learning what changes will be worth our investment Peer-to-peer when asked: do you think everybody needs to go to university? 70-80% said no. But when asked should YOUR child go to university? 85% said yes." Either we begin (NOW)
to push education away from content delivery, AND TOWARDS HUMAN DEVELOPMENT,
or we'll go down
with the ship. What can we do to prepare for this Change? Shift the focus from content to personal development and coaching. Think about the "customizations" and how to provide and quantify them. Except for those on the cutting edge, content is going to quickly become a dead-end. Reeling out
the years Other Models Video of the live presentation is posted here: http://bit.ly/LEVERSvideo You'll see videos on the wall of the factory. These are not in the presentation path, but you may want to go back and watch these when you're done. Extra 30 minutes. So how can we

want? Open Learning intelligent tutoring and mentoring

focus on destination as well as journey Raw materials (students) are processed through an assembly line (courses) to achieve a final product (graduates). We might not
Sink today ... or next year ... but it's not unreasonable to expect that eventually we're going to end up headed straight towards ONE of these "iceberg" scenarios.

Aesthetic Engagement Ability-based Learning "Rather than measure performance as a snapshot in time, against a curve that strips away individual achievement, we focus on measurement that's about you, and only you." ARTIFICIAL
INTELLIGENCE What happens when Learning analytics are better than human analytics? LEARNERS How can we
create a school
that helps
learners lead
their lives Skills based
not topic led Decide what skills your students need to achieve by the end of their journey.
Map the skills.
Find the common/quickest route together. TLCs focus on
the skills and
HOW to deliver The TLCs focus on the
public learning experience not the
It's not what you are going to do,
it's what WE are going to do together. Share skills

Skills based learning
Present State of Play Some evidence of KS3 in two years.
Others moving towards this with option choices a possibility for 8 and 9.
Themed learning would not fit….from FC’s
PLTs and SEAL invisibly embedded…they are doing it without thinking, but can map it when asked.
Students like consistency…
Although learning styles may be different and approaches may alter (good differentiation)
Lets work on them in their early years
Build on good primary practice
Set the standard
Less spoon feeding and intervention
Student see commonality embedded throughout their Downend experience
We now have a great uptake in TLC participation by staff
We have looked at their learning now lets focus on the students.
Each TLC has a good cross section of subjects (although ideally for year 7 a representative from English, maths, science, humanities and MFL would be ideal.)
Example 1.
Data Analysis and Presentation.
At the moment I am using it in year 13 Health and Social Care unit 9
Science IAA’s years 10 and 11
Geography will be having to do the same following their field trip, PE presenting performance data, DT? The list could go on.
We will all get on with this neither staff or students seeing the link.
If a TLC group spent time on this skill they could share their methods and create a commonality of approach for students when faced with data in whatever form.
Research – how is this effectively done….avoiding Wikipedia
Report Writing
The list can go on.
If each TLC chose a skill we could produce a cohesive skills based curriculum without resorting to themes ( similar to the wheel diagram)
This would be seen as not an add on but tailor made to support teaching
Produced by staff.. They will have ownership
Student experience. Clarity over tasks not getting different information
