In the second year of the teacher education at the University of Agder, we will now start with a shared padlet about self-regulated learning. Self-regulated learning is a learner´s ability to plan, monitor, and reflect on their own learning process. It is not a skill that learners come to school with, but something that must be developed step-by-step with the help of the teacher. The goal with the shared padlet is for the students to contribute with their perspectives on what self-regulated learning is, and how this is used in schools in Norway. Through group work, students will discuss what self-regulated learning is, and provide examples of how self-regulated learning is worked on in schools in Norway. They will then enter this in the padlet, so that students from other countries can see what they have agreed on.
Through the shared padlet, other teacher students from other countries can also contribute with their perspectives on self-regulated learning, and how this is used in the schools in their country. In this way, students can share perspectives, reflections and experiences across national borders and share their knowledge with each other. This can contribute to expanded knowledge, and inspiration for how to facilitate self-regulated learning in school for the students involved.
We look forward to interesting and different perspectives on the topic of self-regulated learning!
