Notice reference #: 1HA3ZT

Developing Learner Agency, especially in our under achieving students, is about teaching students how to engage more effectively in the Learning Process. 

In this, practical and powerful workshop James Anderson defines learner agency in terms of your student's attitudes and capacities in five key learning characteristics.He uses these to define 6 different types of learners.

Recognising your students as different types of learners is just the first step. The most important element of this work is to ask what actions do students, teachers and parents take to help students increase students Learner Agency, develop as learners and ultimately become Agile Learners. 

How do we improve students relationship with their Learning Zone? 
What feedback and instruction do we give to help students develop their Habits of Mind? 

Why do students ignore mistakes and feedback and how do we get them to pay attention? 

How do we shift the conversation from asking students to put more effort in, to showing them how to put better effort into learning and become better learners?

This workshop will answer all these questions and more.
It will give you the approaches you need to ensure you’re teaching students how to become better learners. 


Packed full of practical ideas to apply in your classroom today!
