4 principles of Student-Centered Learning

4 principles of Student-Centered Learning | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

In our view, student-centered learning is a process of learning that puts the needs of the students over the conveniences of planning, policy, and procedure.

 

Like any phrase, “student-centered learning” is subjective and flexible–and only useful insofar as it ultimately supports the design of learning experiences for students. For example, arguing for a “student-centered approach” to creating curriculum frameworks that center the authentic knowledge needs of each student makes sense, while creating a “student-centered” classroom that gives students little choice in content, voice in product, or a human necessity for creative expression does not. Student-centeredness uses an actual person as an audience, and designs learning experiences backwards from that point.

 

With that in mind, here are 4 principles of student-centered learning to consider as you design curriculum and instruction.

Canva was kind enough to take a great pdf file that Richard Bryne created on 10 Google Search Tips All Students Can Use and create an infographic. Since we know visuals are important to many learners, take the time to check this out and to share it with your students. Also remember that many search techniques that work with Google also work with other search engines.

Les Howard's insight:

There is a  strong case against using robo-graders for assigning grades and test scores. But there’s another use for robo-graders — a role for them to play in which, evidence suggests, they may not only be as good as humans, but better. In this role, the computer functions not as a grader but as a proofreader and basic writing tutor, providing feedback on drafts, which students then use to revise their papers before handing them in to a human.
