So, in a number of blog posts and comments I have been seeing this element of empowering learners/teachers to create engaging learning experiences and the networks to support them.
Someone in my network, Nancy White, pointed me to this resource called the Learner’s Bill of Rights which has a much different feel than the one being circulated by EdSurge (and others) in the last week. For those of you who don’t want to open the PDF, here they are:
The learner has the right to:
1. question and be curious.
2. have personal ideas.
3. choose how to learn and share understanding.
4. plan and participate in learning at an appropriate level.
5. grapple with challenging ideas or concepts.
6. access the information and resources needed.
7. participate in and contribute to a learning network.
8. think critically, solve problems and make decisions.
9. make mistakes and learn from them.
10. reflect on learning.
What do you think?
