Individual Learning Plan
I have been playing with the idea of integrating the functionality of existing systems into useful individual learning tools for students. I've started with the NZ Maths planning assistant and will see where it leads.
- Allow students to co-construct an ILP with teacher, based on learning needs.
- Create a Plan using tools like NZMaths, Asttle WhatNext.
- Import plan into MyPortfolio
- Gather evidence to support.
ILP - Numeracy -multiplication
Term 1 2011
Focus Achievement Objectives
- To export the file into MyPortfolio I copied the html from the NZ MAths plan page and copied it into a text box (html) feature.
- Students can edit the text box as well as follow links to their learning resources.
- The difference with this approach is that the student has an account on NZMaths and is responsible for sourcing resources as well as collecting evidence to support their progress.
- Age appropriateness: My gut feeling is that students at intermediate age could manage this process. The key is the relationship between teacher and student and their learning conversations.
Asttle What Next Matrix
The Asttle WhatNext tool has in my opinion not been utilised or developed to its' full potential. It provides students with the opportunity to map their own learning and access resources that will help them immediately.
Below I've added snapshots of what WhatNext looks like.
It would be amazing if students were able to look at their learning and navigate themselves towards resources that will meet their specific learning needs. Resources would also include MyPortfolio templates to help them record their progress.
The student clicks on their next learning level and is presented with a variety of resources.
Matrices are also available for other Asttle tests.These matrices have not been updated from the 2007 draft curriculum.
