What is the role of the teacher when children learn on their own?

Pat Farenga on "What is the role of the teacher when children learn on their own?"
Self-directed learning (often called unschooling) is sometimes thought to be teacher-less learning by children, but that is not completely true.
The role of the teacher is different when the child decides when, where, how, and from whom to learn, and the context and purposes of teaching are radically different in this configuration.

Self-Directed Learning (SDL) in Adult Education
http://sdlearning.pbworks.com/w/page/1898850/FrontPage
Self-Directed Learning (SDL) in Adult Education
This wiki was originally created for a learning activity requirement in an adult survey course taught by Ralph G. Brockett at The University of Tennessee. The purpose of the activity was to learn about an aspect of adult education history and to gain experience in presenting ideas in different formats.
My intent for this wiki was to present what I had learned exploring the history of self-directed learning (SDL) as well as provide a valuable resource for those wanting an overview of the history of SDL in the field of adult education.

I'm Not in Control of My Class

I'm Not in Control of My Class
I don't want to be in control of my class. I don't want to be the type of teacher that sets the rules for the class, tells her students what and how to do things, and is the sole leader in the room.
I don't want that for my students. I don't want that for me. I want my students to be in control of their learning.
But what am I doing to achieve this goal of mine?

I hope this may be useful as a starting point for developing criteria for evaluating self-directed learning skills/knowledge perhaps as a part of Prior Learning Assessment and as a tool for guiding students in the process.

Self Directed Learning with ICT (pdf) Sg
Theory, Practice and Assessment
This monograph about Self‐Directed Learning (SDL) is written with the Singapore educational context in mind, particularly within the context of formal schooling.
It also explores the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) when promoting SDL in different learning scenarios.
As former teachers in Singapore, we are mindful of the teacher’s needs and responsibilities. Hence, the main audience of this book is teachers from primary schools to junior colleges.

My Perfect Classroom (by David Deubelbeiss)
http://bit.ly/13CCiPF
My Perfect Classroom (by David Deubelbeiss)
The class starts without any teacher talk nor any teachn’ and preachn’. Students walk into the classroom, sign in and head towards their assigned computer. They glance at the whiteboard for the assignment of the day.
The students work with a headset to produce language, finish projects, practice vocabulary word banks using quizzes/flashcards. The activities are leveled and self-paced. Low level students work with the right content – higher level students can challenge themselves. They help each other through English only chat or directly in the class. They are the experts.
The teacher sits in the middle, coffee and tea at hand. With a ring of the bell – she calls for a group to come meet.
we all can do similar things and take steps towards getting to true self directed learning. It isn’t so difficult and in fact it is what YOU as a teacher are doing right now, right this minute

27 Actions That Promote Self-Directed Learning

27 Actions That Promote Self-Directed Learning
So I’m trying to better understand how people learn ... not how they’re taught in terms of teaching strategies, but more so learning strategies ... only not really strategies. Learning actions, or cognitive actions.
Self-directed and social learning will undoubtedly be at the core of any sort of future learning–both near and far future. But to improve learning in both self-directed and teacher-centered learning environments, it can be illuminating to look past the activities, projects, and courses to try to see what sort of brain-level actions learners are performing. Like push-ups, wind sprints, and weight training are physical actions that help train an athlete’s body, what kind of cognitive actions train a learner’s mind?
The goal here is to create a self-directed learning model that supports 21st century learners in finding, analyzing, improving, repackaging and sharing data in pursuit of self-knowledge.
Individually, in small groups, or in a dialogue with you, students begin to create their own assignments, and you transition from task-master to learning facilitator. In and of themselves, they’re not “ready-made” assignments, but they’re not supposed to be. They’re meant not to build content capacity, but learning capacity. Ideally they’d be part of a larger self-directed learning model–something

The Heutagogy Community of Practice
We have officially launched this international online community of educators, researchers, practitioners, and learners who are interested in the topic of heutagogy, the theory and practice of self-determined learning.
The purpose of this project is to bring together people from around the world to share their practical experiences with heutagogy, their thoughts and questions about the theory, and their ongoing work within the field.

Self Directed Learning
http://selfdirectedlearning.com/
"This site supports teaching self-directed learning (SDL) and becoming a self-directed person.
It supports home-schooling, experiential education, open schooling and life-long learning. Keeping a journal, setting goals, planning and taking action are key tools.
Self-improvement, personal development and the development of character are central themes of SDL.
In self-directed learning (SDL), the individual takes the initiative and the responsibility for what occurs. Individuals select, manage, and assess their own learning activities, which can be pursued at any time, in any place, through any means, at any age. In schools, teachers can work toward SDL a stage at a time.
Teaching emphasizes SDL skills, processes, and systems rather than content coverage and tests. For the individual, SDL involves initiating personal challenge activities and developing the personal qualities to pursue them successfully. This website is devoted to illuminating these principals as they apply to schooling and to life."

Journalism as the Essential 21st Century Curriculum
Live and interactive FutureofEducation.com interview with Holly Epstein Ojalvo and Esther Wojcicki to talk about student journalism as "THE" curriculum for the 21st century.
Holly is the founder of Kicker, a student engagement news site, and when I read about Kicker I emailed and asked if she'd consider coming on the show to talk about youth capability and about journalism as a route to self-directed learning.

Monographs on SDL and CoL
To help our (Singapore) teachers and school leaders gain further understanding of self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learing (CoL), we have collaborated with NIE professors to write and publish two monographs on these concepts.
The monographs elucidate SDL and CoL in the light of mp3's (Master Plan 3) vision and goals.

Self-Directed Learning: A Four Step Process
Self-Directed Learning can be challenging, even for the brightest and most motivated students.
As a means of better understanding the processes involved in this mode of study, this Tip Sheet outlines key components of four key stages to independent learning – being ready to learn, setting learning goals, engaging in the learning process, and evaluating learning – and offers some tips for both faculty members and students.

What Makes Self-Directed Learning Effective?
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/10/121004134843.htm
What Makes Self-Directed Learning Effective?
"In recent years, educators have come to focus more and more on the importance of lab-based experimentation, hands-on participation, student-led inquiry, and the use of "manipulables" in the classroom.
The underlying rationale seems to be that students are better able to learn when they can control the flow of their experience, or when their learning is "self-directed.""

Autodidacticism [Wikipedia Definition]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autodidacticism
Autodidacticism
"Autodidacticism (also autodidactism) is self-directed learning [SDL] that is related to but different from informal learning.
In a sense, autodidacticism is "learning on your own" or "by yourself", and an autodidact is a self-teacher.
Autodidacticism is a contemplative, absorptive procession. Some autodidacts spend a great deal of time reviewing the resources of libraries and educational websites. One may become an autodidact at nearly any point in one's life. While some may have been informed in a conventional manner in a particular field, they may choose to inform themselves in other, often unrelated areas."
