‘Learning Menus’ Empower Students to Tailor Curriculum

See on Scoop.itHot Issues in Education

The “curriculum playlist” concept centers around the idea that content should be unbundled so that users can reassemble it according to their preferences.

Cecilia Rosas‘s insight:

New student "learning menus" that offer "voice and choice" via the chance to decide among a variety of assignments and activities to meet class requirements.

The resounding response from students is that they feel like they have ownership of their learning.

That’s just one example of an emerging trend in educational technology. Sometimes called "curriculum playlists," the idea is pulled from other sectors of society in which content is "unbundled" so that users can reassemble the pieces according to their individual preferences.
