The Future Of Learning? Well, It’s Personal

Okay, der Artikel ist „amerikanisch“, es geht um Schulen und vor allem um Mathe. Aber der Punkt, den er macht, „personalized learning“, wird auch hierzulande als Richtung diskutiert, in die sich digitale Bildung bewegt (siehe zum Beispiel Ralph Müller-Eiselt in „Digitale Bildung: im internationalen Vergleich hängen wir 5 – 10 Jahre zurück“, YouTube). Die Autorin, Anya Kamenetz, spielt zwei Perspektiven durch, „pace-driven personalization“ und „interest-driven personalization“. „Pace-driven“ geht nur mit EdTech, „interest-driven“ ist mehr, grundsätzlicher und schwieriger.

„Personalized learning“ has become a Janus-faced word, with at least two meanings in tension:

1. The use of software to allow each student to proceed through a pre-determined body of knowledge, most often math, at his or her own pace.

2. A whole new way of doing school, not necessarily focused on technology, where students set their own goals. They work both independently and together on projects that match their interests, while adults facilitate and invest in getting to know each student one-on-one, both their strengths and their challenges.

Which vision of personalization will prevail? Pace alone, or „Personalize it all“? And what proportion of the hype will be realized?“

The Education Revolution will not be televised

Ein längeres Interview mit Anthony Seldon, der gerade ein Buch geschrieben hat: „The Fourth Education Revolution: Will Artificial Intelligence liberate or infantilise humanity?“ Im Gespräch ist der Autor positiv gestimmt und schwärmt von den Möglichkeiten, die AI bieten kann: personalisiertes Lernen mit neuen Schwerpunkten („curiosity intelligence, emotional intelligence, artistic intelligence“) und in offenen Lernumgebungen, in denen sich Lernende ihre Kurse nach persönlichen Vorlieben und über institutionelle Grenzen hinweg zusammenstellen.

„Seldon draws attention to the fact that the first educational revolution began when Homo sapiens emerged around 200,000 years ago. This was the beginnings of learning, when our humanoid forebears gathered around fires and learned how to make clothes and tools, handing this knowledge down to their offspring. The second education revolution began with the rise of institutionalised learning in schools and writing in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia around 2000 BC. The third revolution began with mass education, helped by the printing press during medieval Europe, and the fourth revolution is the coming of AI, robotics in our present age.“
