I was fortunate enough to visit yet another school, leading the way around MLP. One thing that stood out was how students were able to talk about their learning. That was a good indicator that students own their learning.
I could see that students enjoy sharing and collaborating with others. (using Google Docs in their learning)
- As learning should be purposeful and rewarding, granting students with choices in how and what they learn will play an important part in learning having meaning.
- Students should evaluate their own learning to be able to tell if they are making progress.
- It is important to create learning spaces to the needs of different types of learners.
- Some students will take longer than others and should be permitted to work at their own level and pace.
A learning environment should be such as space that students don't want to leave.
