Student Centered Learning

“… I helped them develop skills such as using research tools, finding and evaluating sources, and collaborating with their peers.”

“… The real power is when students take responsibility for their own learning.”

student-centred learning

“… the three questions every student in our classroom had to answer were:

· What are you going to learn?

· How are you going to learn it?

· How are you going to show me your learning?…

… This is what it means to give students “control over their education.”

“… My students need to be able to find and critically evaluate their own resources.”

“… As Alfie Kohn states, a learning environment that promotes constructing knowledge ‘treats students as meaning makers and offers carefully calibrated challenges that help them to develop increasingly sophisticated theories. The point is for them to understand ideas from the inside out.’”

“… And my students became more adept at research, thinking, collaborating, problem solving, and reflecting on their own learning. Everyone finished on time.”

“…For me, the question really is: who owns the learning in your classroom?”

“… Alvin Toffler states, ‘The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.’”
