Empower: What Happens When Students Own the Learning
June 17 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm$100
Student choice is about more than just a menu option. It’s about student ownership. This includes ownership of the processes, the assessment, the strategies, and the metacognition. But how do we make this happen? How do we fit this into our standards and our curriculum map? In this session, you’ll learn from Dr. John Spencer about the importance of student ownership, and how to build it in your own setting.
All participants will also receive free access to the following course:
Empowering Students in Distance Learning Classrooms: Self-paced Course:
What does it mean to empower our students in distance learning environments? How do we help them become self-directed when they are away from their classroom? We tackle these hard questions as we focus on what it means to have students self-select scaffolds, use choice menus, engage in creative projects and self-assess. Each day, you will watch a practical video with specific strategies and then create something meaningful that you will actually use in your distance learning classroom. In the end, you’ll have a specific plan for designing a student-centered distance learning unit.
