Student Autonomy

Student Autonomy | Blogs at St Joseph's | Scoop.it
Empowering Students In the Classroom

 

When I think of change that needs to happen in Education, my immediate thought goes toward student autonomy. To be autonomous as a student is to be able to independently manage the freedom one has in the classroom, while maintaining a harmonious relationship with the teacher.

 

For a student to be autonomous, a student must realize:

They have a voiceTheir voice mattersIt will be heardIt will make a difference

This fits by 100% my meaning also!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 1, 2014 12:54 PM

Student autonomy happens with teacher autonomy. Gert Biesta proposes democracy happens in classrooms where it is lived and modeled. It is not a distant process. The word is not autonomy but emancipation which is responsible for the Other and the world we live in.

Stevi Quate's curator insight, July 2, 2014 9:28 AM

When John McDermott and I wrote Clock Watchers and The Just Right Challenge, we wrote about empowering students and captured similar ideas to this posting. Since these ideas aren't new and seem to be shared widely, I wonder why these ideas aren't the norm in classrooms that we watch.

Why is empathy essential in engineering?

Why is empathy essential in engineering? | Blogs at St Joseph's | Scoop.it

Are Women Too Empathetic to be Engineers?, asked Vicky May, Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College, in an article.

Reflecting on David Kelley, one of IDEO’s founders, advice to Darmouth 2014 engineers to “empathize“, May argues that while engineering is indeed about, it should also be about empathy.

“Why is empathy essential in engineering?


Engineers design and build products, yes, but these products are for people! To design effective products and processes engineers must understand the people who will use them. And increasingly they must understand people from different cultures. Too often I see engineers develop technical solutions to problems in third world countries that go unused or are unwanted because the engineers failed to understand their users.”
