What is School? Student Centred Learning

I am so pleased to be back. I have been lucky enough to have a break over the last two weeks and have been travelling around Sri Lanka with my family.

Back now and I can’t wait to get stuck back into #whatisschool – reading the archives has just not done it for me.

This week we are looking at Student Centred Learning and whether it increases student engagement and learning. It is guaranteed to be a trending success!

“I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.” -Albert Einstein

We are in the midst of an education renaissance brought on by a rapidly developing technology sector and a shift in learning focus from industrial skills to global communication. With this change has come a host of teaching innovations.
Join us this week as #whatisschool takes an in-depth look at student centred learning where the teacher turns from “sage on stage” to mentor and coach, and the students take more responsibility for furthering their own education.

  • Thursday 4pm Pacific Time
