At our home of learning, student centred learning which
– provides students with greater autonomy and choice of subject matter and pace of study:
– involves students in more decision‐making processes
– requires extensive use of digital technologies; and,
– results in memorable experiences where students ‘learn by doing’ with relevance to the real world.
The above should then translate into core questions you ask yourself and others when trying to measure the worth and value of a learning activity. Questions such as:
– Does this activity provide greater choice of subject matter?
– Does this activity provide a choice of the pace of their study?
– How are you (the teacher) involving students in more decision‐making processes?
– Have you pursued the extensive use of digital technologies for this task?
– Will this be a ‘memorable experience’ for the students?
