Ownership! In today's fast-paced and ever-changing world, it's more important than ever for students to take ownership of their own learning process. However, this shift towards student-centered learning can bring added pressure to class management.
The Learning M!X concept, developed troughout the INSTALL-ed project, aims to bridge the gap between several types of school practices and EdTech by providing a common framework and language for digital class management of self-regulated learning.
The Basics: learning activities, sets, and rules. This generic structure not only helps to support the autonomy of students but also facilitates the exchange of good practices between teachers and schools, and encourages the use of technology to enhance the learning experience. Sets and rules provide a structure that helps learners understand the learning process, and provides them with tools and understandings that help them build their self-regulatory skills along the way. These sets and rules are designed by the teachers using the building bloks of the learning M!X resulting in their own blueprint. These learning M!X blueprints or digital templates will differ, depending on the approach of a teacher, team or school. Teachers can design their own Learning M!X templates or blueprints that they can use every time they prepare a week, a project, a theme or a lesson.

For EdTech, this means that context is king. The Learning M!X architecture enables the development of new features that are tailored to the specific needs of each school, teacher, and student. This approach not only enhances the learning experience, but also helps teachers become more effective coaches in supporting students' self-regulated learning.
In conclusion, the Learning M!X concept provides an approach that enables school practices to transform ownership in learning and gradually empower students SRL-skills. By providing a common framework and language, it enables the exchange of good practices and encourages the use of technology to enhance both physical and digital learning experiences. The focus on learning activities, sets, and rules provides a structure that helps learners navigate the learning process autonomously and build their self-regulatory skills along the way. With the Learning M!X, teachers can take an active role in creating personalized and effective learning experiences for their students.
