School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today released a new strategy for student-centered learning, an instructional model that allows students to take ownership for their own learning. The strategy for student-centered learning, released in the weekly publication Strategy of the Week, shows the process of building and maintaining a successful student-centered learning community.
“Student-centered learning is key to preparing students with the skills they need to be college and career ready,” said Chet Linton, School Improvement Network CEO and president. “By focusing learning on student pace and progress, student-centered learning puts students at the center of their education, helping them engage more actively in the learning process and making all subjects more relevant to them by focusing education on student learning rather than teaching to a test.”
Through this learning strategy, educators will see the process of building a successful student-centered learning community, beginning with three preliminary activities that are critical to a successful implementation.
