Nir Golan, Educational & Leadership Expert, has developed a new learning model called Swarm Learning that allows students to learn naturally in their community environments.
In Swarm Learning model the first phase occurs when the student observes the system while Participating, without being told what to look for. This overcomes the limitation of conventional learning methods that optimize learning according to predefined goals and syllabus.
In the Searching phase the student observes the environment under investigation and tries to find out learning subject. The student simultaneously learns to model the behavior of the environment and to discriminate between the aggregating and phenomena around him.
Dobeing is the heart of the Swarm learning model: Passion, Capabilities and Uniqueness.
· Passion: The things I like to do most and excite me.
· Capabilities: Skills I'm good at and I do the best.
· Uniqueness: My significant behavior and added value to those around me.
Dobeing is realizing one's full potential according to these three categories while using the Swarm learning model. Dobeing is a combination of doing and being; therefore it is a new term and is the heart of the Swarm learning model. Golan assumes that these two modes should be fused and not use as a conflict term. Dobeing is to express and activate all the passion, Capabilities and Uniqueness of the student.
The Naming phase occurs when the student defines and gives titles to the phenomena, opportunities or threats he observed. The titles are based on understanding the principles or mechanism of the phenomena.
The last phase in Swarm learning model is the Adaptive Learning phase when the titles were successfully applied to infer swarm learning behaviors: teaching the others in the community. The student is rewarded for categorizing the phenomena from the Searching Swarm learning phase as a base for the Adaptive Learning.
