Developing Learner Agency
Agency is expected in schools, rather than being consciously enabled. Learner agency is only possible if learners have the required capabilities to take executive agency over their world.
These capabilities require learners to be:
- Able to understand and apply the learning process
- Working within a conceptual curriculum.
The roles of teachers and students need to be transformed, enabling students to become learner-educators, and for teachers to become educator-learners.
Learning is the key to unlocking our curiosity and the ability of learners to explore and leverage and apply their understanding in numerous ways.
