Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What’s the Difference?

In this age of abundance of information, shifting classroom pedagogy isn’t nearly enough to make learning in school more relevant and authentic for the learner. Self-directed learning (andragogy), and self-determined learning (heutagogy) are the ideals necessary in making students “future ready” to live and learn in a web connected world.

While original research applied these concepts to mature learners, it has become apparent that even young children have an abundant capacity for recognizing and directing their own learning. Anyone who has observed toddlers learning how to walk and talk understand the motivation and skill development that quickly develops during these processes.
