The Networked Student Model for Construction of Personal Learning Environments: Balancing Teacher Control and Student Autonomy
Drexler, Wendy
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v26 n3 p369-385 2010
Principles of networked learning, constructivism, and connectivism inform the design of a test case through which secondary students construct personal learning environments for the purpose of independent inquiry. Emerging web applications and open educational resources are integrated to support a "Networked Student Model" that promotes inquiry-based learning and digital literacy, empowers the learner, and offers flexibility as new technologies emerge. The "Networked Student Model" and a test case are described in detail along with implications and considerations for additional research. The article is meant to facilitate further discussion about K-12 student construction of personal learning environments and offer the practitioner a foundation on which to facilitate a networked learning experience. It seeks to determine how a teacher can scaffold a networked learning approach while providing a foundation on which students take more control of the learning process. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
