Student Agency – One Way to be a Better Teacher (Webinar)
This webinar will cover why it was decided to change the way we teach and how this has developed into a course that allows each student to develop a personalised programme that suits their needs.
It uses flipped learning, student-written assessment, choice of standards, flexible timeframes for learning and assessment, academic mentoring and lots of teacher-student interaction.
Join in a conversation about how over 1100 secondary students are deciding what, when and how they want to learn.
This programme was developed in a Maths situation but is applicable to a wide range of secondary classes.
What you'll learn:
- Evidence that students can be responsible for their learning
- Confirmation that students have different goals and individual rates of learning
- We can change without waiting for the perfect situation or the full solution.
Anyone who wants to prepare students for their future rather than our past. Particularly relevant for secondary teachers.
Cost: $195 +GST per school (Up to 50% OFF for small schools – see full details)
