    The importance of the individual mind for learning processes The importance of the individual mind for learning processes Presentation Transcript

    • Referat Gesellschaft The importance of the individual mind for learning processes in general – as well as for teachers’ training courses in the project in particular
    • Learning (by an individual)
      • is an autonomous individual psychological process activity
      • is following its own rules
      • depends on the activities by the others
      • depends on the cultural-historical circumstances
      • depends on the actually given context
      • depends on a lot of contingencies
      • but it is not (and cannot be) determinated
    • Motivation
      • Motivating another person does not work.
      • Motives are built by the person himself / herself.
      • Motives are object-oriented.
      • Motives are usually often unconcious.
      • Motives easily change.
      • Motives are diversified and personal.
    • Personal Sense
      • Sustainable Learning processes need a constant feeling of personal sense.
      • Personal sense is grounded in the relationship between the individual and the object.
      • Personal sense cannot be given or donated extranously.
      • Personal sense can only be found / built by the individual.
      • Finding personal sense can be triggered by the question:
        • "What has this object got to do with me?"
    • Personal Sense and Societal Meaning
      • Any object has societal meaning(s) – built by cultural- historical processes of the human activity.
      • Personal sense is not identical with these meanings.
      • Personal sense is not the concretization of these meanings.
      • Personal Sense is built in the actual living processes of an individual.
      • Personal Sense concretizes itself within the specific bunch of several sociatal meanings which are important to the individual.
    • And now?
      • We cannot motivate the students.
      • We also cannot give the sense to the students.
      • So what CAN we do?
    • What we can do – we have to do
      • give the object
      • give the cause (or the provocation)
      • to encounter the object
      • give the time and the space
      • give the information and the instruments
      • that are needed for building motives and personal sense by every single student of his / her own
    • Learning is a social activity
      • communicating
      • collaborating
      • The challenge is to shape learning environments, in which the single motives and personal sense can be built within a communicative and collaborative context.
      • The mainly functioning form: (Learning) Project
    • Triple Loop Learning in Learning Projects
      • Learning of the Learning of the Learning
      • the object (stuff, content) itself = L
      • the How to learn the object (method) = LL
      • the Why to learn the object (sense) = LLL
    • Structuring learning processes in Learning Projects
      • Give
      • procedures
      • instruments
      • large amount of information and communication possibilities
      • Don‘t give
      • stuff, content
      • goals,
      • outcome, results
