I was simply stating my position re: the value and purpose of definitions. When you succeed, your advisor succeeds. Instead, there needs to be careful planning to ensure students will be guided and supported in meeting curricular standards. As a parent of an online student, your role is to assist your student and oversee progress, along with developing these important independent learning traits.
Self-directed, more independent learning frees up opportunities for teachers to talk with students, assess where they are academically, and how their individual learning plan can be tweaked to achieve maximum results. Montessori classrooms contain many different learning materials, which will allow your child to find something they like. Increasingly, new technology solutions will provide a source of up to date multimedia resources and language tools but it is important to provide a range of materials reference, language practice activities, authentic texts, newspapers, course books etc. We have not included a handbook on the language curriculum in this series since every learning and teaching context will have its own priorities. Valuing the way we think is also very important to help us gain understanding and making good judgment and decisions in life. Thus began our use of independent learning.
It's also true dependency on instruction is tied closely to student age and maturity. Some advisors are specialists in certain investment strategies. Conclusion I have dwelt upon the dangers of what might happen. A number of strands seem to be converging at the current time to promote the value of independent language learning. Especially as I kept adding students on the pre-K end of the scale, and the older children were in the middle-elementary portion of their education.
I have no idea if this is the most appropriate model but it leads to some interesting thoughts. A weakness is only as dangerous as the level of ignorance the person has about it. Independent learning is a self-guided process wherein the learning works to expand their knowledge and skills. Motivation to climb over obstacles is far easier to muster when the student is allowed to choose what educational mountain to tackle first. For example, it will allow them to focus on any extra or new materials that are covered in sessions as well as gives them the opportunity to ask questions on what they may not be clear about.
This encourages a unique level of personalized service not always found in investor-advisor relationships. Instead, they are turning to intelligent adaptive learning programs and one or several blended learning models.

Your argument seems to me to support the idea that that could involve pupil on teacher dependency, pupil on pupil dependency, and teacher on pupil dependency. This, in turn, will help them to become better, more effective independent learners. On a personal note, students on an introductory course to education and psychology that I teach as part of a universities commitment to lifelong learning, and which is intended to equip students to explore further in their own directions, are saying that they value the initial guidance and route maps provided.
Students are also seeking the opportunities for flexibility of scheduling and cost efficiency that online studies can offer. Yes, there is that possibility. Without a policy framework which addresses implementation and resourcing issues, it will be difficult to implement independent learning in a coherent way and to attract institutional or departmental commitment. If an understanding of what is needed does not reach the planners then all may be in vain and they may fail to meet the needs of the students of the future. Finally, as an Independent learner it is easily discovered that information skills gained help us in various ways such as the ability to recognise information when needed, ability to ask relevant questions as well as reflect and evaluate our own learning skills. I will give an example of 2 British Universities over the provision of Study Skills for British students.
