In a recent review, mme moe users reported a significant increase in the agency they have over their professional learning. They used their agency to get on-demand access to learning resources and they could see the impact of their learning over time. Here are 10 ways they reported:
1. Reflection becomes a habit
Users report that developing a habit of continuous self and professional reflection is a real positive. They use mme moe's emotionality dial regularly, mostly daily. They say having a good handle on their emotionality really helps them with their energy for teaching.
2. Building a mentor network
They report not seeing personalised learning as only an individual practice. They report using mme moe to build mentor and collegial networks to help guide and support their learning. Interestingly, they report some confidence in being providers, not just recipients, of support. Many did not expect this.
3. Self assessing creates focus
They feel that the capacity to self-assess is very empowering. They were able to use the data gathered to get an overview of their learning, which they found useful, a view on what was important to them to learn next, which they found focusing, and a view on how much they had improved over a specific time-frame which the found both empowering and motivating.
4. They set their own agenda
The data, they report, enables them to set their own agenda and identify reachable professional learning targets.
5. Breaking professional learning down into smaller chunks
They use the planning functionality enabled them to break down learning targets into fundamental objectives and identify what they needed to do to reach identified milestones.
6. My learning has purpose, therefore I stick with it
They report that the mme moe enables them to access and engage in learning with a clear purpose that was directly connected to their personal, identified needs and applicable to the classroom in which they were working.
7. I can author my own professional learning pathways
Teacher users report that authoring their own personal learning pathways increased their engagement. They were able to address their own different needs, strengths, and learning styles, as opposed to being receivers of a general approach at a conference, a lecture or even a workshop.
8. I am in charge of my learning
They report that the capacity to learn when it was best for them was extremely powerful. The capacity to access learning objects at their own pace, place, time and pathway gave them the feeling that they were in charge of their own learning. The environment enabled them to effectively use the time they had available to connect, collaborate and learn.
9. I can find and connect with others who are invested in developing the same competencies
They report that the capacity to engage with others who were also invested in solving similar problems and issues was very useful. It was almost as if they had their own workplace based mentor or coach.
10. Bite-sized, non-linear is better
They report that bite-sized, non-linear learning, supported by mme moe, reflect their authentic learning needs.
