They strongly believe that learning is a personal process that most effectively occurs when information, cognition, and self-directed goals come together within a contextual setting. Learnerati actively incorporates the ongoing collection of data from within classrooms as the formative part of a larger feedback process. This concept is at the heart of Learnerati. They are a community of learners helping other learners to teach even more learners effectively.
Learnerati focuses on helping districts and schools hone their approach to achieving their own set of goals. Often, this means re-examining the problem in terms of both the goal and the available resources, then crafting a custom approach. This is done using the following principles:
Create A “Curiosity” Culture Among Both Learners And Instructors
The intrinsic desire to learn expresses itself as an open curiosity toward the surrounding world. By creating a climate that cultivates, nourishes, and protects curiosity, educators can introduce those insightful learning moments.
Learn To Plan For Flexibility And Spontaneity
Instructional planning should not be rigid or uncompromising. It should create a framework taking into account how learning objectives progress through time to build meaning and develop deeper understanding.
Engage Learners By Focusing On Depth Of Understanding
When learners truly understands an idea, concept, or skill they can easily reconstruct it into differing levels of complexity depending on need. Learning should incorporate that as a requirement to increase flexible thinking.
Augment Learning With Reality And Complexity
Knowledge rarely exists in a vacuum. Rather, it exists as a shared context with other information, skills, or concepts. For this reason, effective learning occurs when as much context as possible is part of the learning experience.
Respond To Outcomes Quickly And Strategically
Feedback is crucial in learning, not only for learners but for instructors as well. Treat outcomes as valuable opportunities to improve the learning process and adjust accordingly.
