    1. Self-Mapped Learning Pathways

      Matt describes a detailed example of how such a self-mapped learning pathway might happen for real using a variety of practices and digital tools in his 28 March 2019 blog post: Creating a Self-Mapped Learning Pathway.

    2. What are “Self-Mapped Learning Pathways”?

      Fascinating exploration from Matt Crosslin about how #personalized — or maybe better — #heutagogical learning can be a complex journey, traversing both learner- and instructor-defined pathways.

    1. Algorithms will privilege some forms of ‘knowing’ over others, and the person writing that algorithm is going to get to decide what it means to know… not precisely, like in the former example, but through their values. If they value knowledge that is popular, then knowledge slowly drifts towards knowledge that is popular.

    1. Examples of such violence can be seen in the forms of an audit culture and empirically-driven teaching that dominates higher education. These educational projects amount to pedagogies of repression and serve primarily to numb the mind and produce what might be called dead zones of the imagination. These are pedagogies that are largely disciplinary and have little regard for contexts, history, making knowledge meaningful, or expanding what it means for students to be critically engaged agents.

      On audit culture in education. How do personalized/adaptive/competency-based learning and learning analytics support it?

    1. broadband and ICTs also increase the ability of individuals to choose and arrange learning that is appropriate to their particular circumstances and needs

      tech > personalized learning

    1. having all students select an online game, app, or learning module from a pre-determined list is not really student choice—after all, someone else curated the list. While it’s a step in the right direction, allowing students time to explore and make choices for themselves bears a stronger connection to personalization

      How do we reconcile student choice to make learning personal with frequent need to scaffold choice (in this case, through curation) for learners who are still in effect learning how to learn and need support?
