What if young people designed their own learning?

https://theconversation.com/what-if-young-people-designed-their-own-learning-59153

Teachers need to strike the balance between encouraging independent learning and providing students with guidance. They have a key role in cultivating confident, curious learners who can take risks and learn from their mistakes. Feedback loops are critical, with students and teachers providing regular feedback to each other to achieve quality learning.”

Failure Through Play = Learning

Rubik:  “Play is one of the most serious things in the world…I learn most from my failures.  That’s the way to learn.  That’s the way to be successful.”

Most people give up on difficult challenges like Rubik’s cube because we haven’t been trained to persevere.  The consequences of our instant gratification culture are not mitigated by our test-driven education system.  Our assessments value quantity over depth and easily-measurable lower-level thinking skills (memorization, comprehension, application) over time-consuming subjective feedback needed for creative problem solving.  And what we measure, we teach.

Meta Study Finds Peer Assessment More Effective Than Teacher Assessment

Peer Assessment

F.A.I.L. University courses rely on self-assessment and peer-assessment.

“peer assessment is more effective than no assessment and teacher assessment and not significantly different in its effect from self-assessment.”

https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10648-019-09510-3

A learning system that offers personalized flexibility, opportunities for growth, and meaning for every student could make anything other than automated assessments daunting, to say the least.  This is where peer assessment can come in.  Schools across the country (bigpicture.org) are starting to involve students in the curriculum design process. This study underscores the need for authentic peer feedback within a personalized teaching strategy.

Good Enough (Online) Learning Infographic

“‘Success is going from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm’ is … not a call for mediocrity…, but rather a reminder of the messiness of the process. If we’re comfortable enough to risk mistakes and willing to try something that at first may not be ideal …, we might learn great things in the process.” https://bit.ly/3iZjClw
