Promoting Student Agency

Student Agency is giving your students the ability to act and take control of their learning. It is about ensuring students know their strengths and weaknesses, can be independent and self-directed, are aware of their next steps and take an increasing responsibility for their learning. In this fast paced workshop or webinar, Karen will challenge you and your team to look deeper into what facilitates student agency and provide practical ways to scaffold this in your classroom.

You will cover:

  • ways to empower students to be self-directed
  • the use of metacognition
  • ways to scaffold independence
  • ideas to teach the learning to learn strategies
  • goal setting approaches
  • self monitoring and managing strategies
  • the role of the teacher and how it has changed
