From the author:
Why lifelong learning is important
Due to the ever-changing world of work and increased mechanization, there is a current and future demand on the ability and willingness of lifelong learning for workers.
This goes hand in hand with the fact that working people increasingly have to remain capable and willing to learn in order to participate in the added value of society: The company affiliation changes frequently (more), the job is increasingly changed; Employed people today should be able to react quickly to the changing demands of the labor market.
Education as human capital
This requires flexible, learning-ready and learning-competent employees. In a sense, education is the human capital in order to survive in the social competition in the labor market.
The educational qualification is decisive for "in which position individuals can establish themselves in the socially structural structure of society" and which income level they will reach. But learning is not easy for everyone. You need impetus and outside help.
Teachers as learning process initiators
Teachers are learning process initiators: they prepare didactic-methodical learning contents. They develop suitable learning arrangements with supporting work orders. However, learning processes do not follow a specific system and are the same for each learner, but are very individual and diverse.
The teacher should therefore not start from a “fictitious average learner”, but should focus more on the individual understanding and processing processes of the individual learner.
How can learning coaches help?
By employing professional learning coaches, educational institutions can help make education more individual and diverse. Learners can design their learning process individually with the help of the learning coach, e.g. B.
- in the form of learning materials at different levels,
- by means of individual learning objectives and strategy planning,
- on the basis of specific methodological tasks,
- through the use of suitable illustrative material or
- in the form of individual support in order to be able to learn more motivated or time-efficient, etc.
Learning coaching: help for self-learning
In summary, this means that learners have to be empowered to acquire knowledge themselves and to independently control their learning process.
These characteristics and abilities can be promoted and optimized in the context of learning coaching, especially as an explicit as well as conscious examination of one's own learning takes place here. As a result, learning coaching and counseling should be an integral part of education and school development.
What is a learning coaching?
The Lerncoach is a partner for the students, a sensitive listener who wants to get something out of the heads, rather than forcefully press it. He draws his authority from the fact that he does not appear authoritarian.
Because the student feels that he is respected and considered with interest, he answers in the same currency: with Respect and interest. When a student finds out why he wants to learn and how he does it best, he automatically becomes a better student.
Why a learning coaching?
From time to time, schools change their teaching structures in order to better prepare learners for current societal needs and conditions.
Individualized and internally differentiated learning offers as well as action-oriented teaching are intended to help learners learn skills and skills in order to be able to qualify professionally.
