@impacteduk is a community for educators to discuss and debate the innovations and practices in education and evaluate them against research for impact on children’s learning. It is a community interested in evidence and rigour. This is not the place for anecdotes and opinions, unless they are to stimulate discussion. This is a community where people are respected, and ideas are evaluated critically.

      nice one – I opened it up a bit to include the creation of wikis and collaboration. Hope thats ok – wikipedia fits as a subsection of this maybe?

    Independent Learning

      could you expand upon what you mean?

        I think there is a body of us who are interested in Independent Learning, particularly its place in the classroom. I have completed M.Ed research on the topic in terms of KS5.


        Mitchell Resnick argues that IL or ‘exploratory’ forms of learning are prevalent in ‘early years ed’ but as learners progress through the stages of education it is ‘replaced by transmission-based teaching’ (2012). I think there is scope for this to be explored further. Why does this happen. Can it be changed? What barriers are there? Do we all agree on what IL is? What does the research have to say? What is the effect on student preparedness for HE study?

        My research was a small scale study, I believe there is more to be done both in practice and in pedagogical research. Particularly the potential of MIE within school settings.

        understood – so would a title of “independent or self directed learning” be ok?

      • jamesmichie
        July 16, 2012

        Yes… I think that would be perfect.

        Really looking forward to seeing how this all develops BTW. 🙂
