Engaging between these two entities is a complex and mind wrenching task for a teacher! Yet there is a drive to set up student driven learning so that they are in control of the, when, how fast and what volume can I manage! These concepts lead me to the mapping of progress and the "designing" of ones learning pathway! If our students do this, then they can self assess against their standards! Our job is to guide, nurture and be a emotional resource for our students in there educational design.
The next step is taking the time at the beginning if each Learning Grouping (Skill or knowledge) to actually get the students to articulate their learning to you! What is it you are going to know how to do by the time you are finished?
Then there are questions like, why are you wanting to do that is this way? Have you possibly thought of using this App which I find a very fast and effective way of doing that?
Questioning is the key! Introduce the technology for a reason! If it does not improve the speed of learning then there is no point in using it! Stick with what they can use to learn! But continuously challenge them to learn in deeper ways! 🎓
