How can we start structuring how to let go of control? "The less educators try to control what kids learn, the more students’ voices will be heard and, eventually, their ability to drive their own learning."

Nancy White's curator insight, August 21, 2013 4:31 PM

I love the fact that Diana responds to teachers who ask her when she just "tells students stuff" -she suggests that if you spark the interest, they can do the research. And...this leads to more ownership and engagement. This is where student curation begins! Great tips for creating a culture of inquiry.
