Commentary by Stephen Downes

A pedagogy based on student choice isn't just some myth that is talked about but never seen in reality. It's actually out there. John Spencer offers some practical advice to those working with choice. "Student choice goes beyond simply picking an item out of a menu. It’s about self-directed students taking charge of their own learning." And, importantly, you have to model it. " They need a vision for how it can look and you, as the teacher, can provide that to them by modeling. Sometimes you will have to give permission when you assume they already know it. Sometimes you will have to model the metacognition needed in self-assessment."
