Supporting Self-Directed Learning for ALL Students! IBM in Action!

Supporting Self-Directed Learning for ALL Students! IBM in Action!

Self-directed learning can be as diverse as simply discovering new information and thinking critically about it, actively participating and contributing to a learning community, or designing your own learning path and selecting resources, guides and information. No matter how you choose to integrate self-directed learning into your classroom, there are several methods teachers can use to increase ownership and responsibility in learners, and support them in creating their own learning path. This informative workshop will provide you with practical strategies to help your students to think critically and creatively. The most valuable resource for engaging in self-directed learning is the ability to be aware of self and the world around us, and to inquire deeply about both.

Learning Outcomes - Participants will…

  • Discover new ways to integrate self-directed learning into their curriculum to increase ownership and responsibility in their pupils
  • Explore multiple tools and resources to model experiences that support student growth and development and boost student learning and active involvement
  • Find multiple ways to create and foster innovation and inclusion in having students take ownership of their self-directed learning opportunities
