  • Education- Systems Change The frontline of learning is not the classroom, but the bedroom and the living room. Our education system’s biggest untapped resource is the children themselves. Leadbeater, 2005 “ ”

  • we call it LEARNING!
    • Personalisation means thinking about public services in an entirely different way-starting with the person rather than the service. It will require the transformation of education.
    Personalisation
    • It Means:-
    • Starting with the individual as a person with strengths and preferences.
    • Consideration of the network of support and resources around them.
    • The individual is often the best placed to know what they need and how these needs are best met.
    • People can be responsible for themselves and can make their own decisions.
    • Information and support should be provided to enable informed decision making.
    • Giving people much more choice and control in their lives.
  • Personalisation Self-directed Support Individual Budgets Personal Budgets Direct Payments Personalisation The process by which state provided services can be adapted to suit students. In Children’s Services this means everyone having choice and control over the shape of their support along with a greater emphasis on prevention and early intervention. Self-directed Support A change to the way Children’s Services operates to give students choice, control and power over the support they receive. Direct Payments A cash payment paid directly to the student to enable them to organise their own support, rather than having support directed from the council. Individual Budgets A clear up-front allocation of money that can combine several funding options that students can use to design and purchase support from the public, private and voluntary sector. Personal Budgets Like a Individual Budget but solely made up of multi-agency funding.
  • Systems Change More to students, families, learning and networks. To schools, LA’s and school groups Funding More real world learning. Schools/ centres as productive units. In classrooms, from books/whiteboards/ 1 dimensional technology. How? All the time in different periods that are relevant to individual styles of learning-developing a competency based curriculum. In school terms and hours. The lesson. When/ Where? Interaction, collaboration & innovation. More learning by doing and discovery. Making greater use of technologies for learning. Instruction Learning mode Teachers, parents, other skilled adults, peers and social networks. Teachers Source In schools, cultural centres, businesses, learning shops and free space. Mainly in schools Place Future Past Learning Feature
  • Education for the future?! Founded in 2002 by author Dave Eggers and educator Nínive Calegari. 826 Valencia is dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 via project based workshops at times to suit students- in school, after school, evenings, weekends and during school holidays.

  • Conclusion How do we as a society challenge existing belief systems to create different types of school, based on new kinds of community led learning initiatives? How is a new system of education based on entrepreneurship to be fostered? Is there now a question to be asked, as a social society, should we be fundamentally enabling learning as we know it to change its shape? Final Thoughts... How far do we take the personalisation agenda?
