  8. Teaching Students to Become Self-Determined Learners

    Children are born learning machines who want to learn and can organise and manage their own learning. Unfortunately, today children have little choice over what they do in school and how and when they do it. Children prepared in this ‘other-determined’ manner will be poorly equipped to navigate an adult world requiring that they act autonomously and self-direct learning to acquire skills in rapidly changing environments. In Teaching students to become self-determined learners, Michael Wehmeyer and Yong Zhao explore the how and why of self-determined learning - which emphasises autonomy and choice, turning over ownership for learning to students by supporting them in engaging in activities that are of personal value to them, thus enabling them to act volitionally.

  11. Learning First, Technology Second in Practice: New Strategies, Research and Tools for Student Success

    Students’ attention levels are high when they use digital devices, but how can we move them to an equally high level of commitment to their learning tasks? Author Liz Kolb’s extensive research into this question led to the development of the Triple E Framework, in which the learning goal - not the tool - is the most important element of a given lesson. Understanding how students learn is built into the framework, which is designed to help teachers make strategic technology choices and instructional decisions based on the learning goal and the science of learning. This book extends and deepens the teaching in Kolb’s bestselling book Learning first, technology second.
