While the world outside the classroom has developed, classroom
instruction has remained stagnant. Students are encouraged to just
cover the curriculum and the power of purpose and meaningful
contribution are absent. Furthermore this old way of doing things
doesn't credit students' natural curiosity to direct their own
learning. In Who Owns the Learning?, author Alan November uses his
Digital Learning Farm education model to show teachers how
technology allows students to take ownership of their learning,
create their own learning tools, and participate in work that has
meaning to them and others. In this model, every student is a
teacher and a global publisher.
In chapter one, readers will learn what a Digital Learning Farm
is and how it can optimize learning. Chapters two through five each
focus on a specific job for students in the digital learning farm
and provide examples of students working through them. November
also offers a story about how the job is being utilized in
classrooms, techniques for educators to leverage the work in their
classrooms, and questions for discussion in each chapter. Finally,
November offers an example of students owning their learning
through technology in chapter six. This book is a guide to teachers
who want to move teaching and learning into the 21st century
incorporating technology and opportunities for students to direct
their own learning into instruction.
