Choose Your Reading Adventure - Michelle Gibbings

You might remember the Choose Your Own Adventure book series from childhood. In the books, the reader makes choices that determine the primary character’s actions and, consequently, the outcome of the story.

It was hugely popular and was considered by many educators as a great way to encourage learning. The readers had a choice in where the adventure went.

It was a great example of how learning is elevated when we get a say in what and how we learn.

Self-directed learning fosters a sense of ownership about what is being learned. When you’ve decided you want to learn something and know why it matters to you, you’re more motivated to start and finish because your intrinsic motivational levers are activated. Plus, when you’ve selected the content and method of learning, you’ve made a choice. And we love having autonomy and the freedom to choose.

Tapping into the joys of self-directed learning, this week you get to select from a series of articles.

You probably know that I enjoy writing and you might be aware that I regularly write for media outlets and publications. So, here are a few recent articles for you to select from.
