Student-Centered Learning: 3 Whole-School Models



"There are many ways that teachers put students at the center of learning. But how do you design and entire school where inquiry, discovery and play form a core instructional model that ensures high achievement for all students? In this panel, three Colorado school leaders will share how they craft authentic contexts for learning based on their community's needs. Learn about best practices for student-centered learning emerging from innovative schools, where game design, a micro-economy and environmental responsibility provide a new way of thinking about teaching, learning and leadership."

I was very fortunate to be part of this panel discussion at this year's SXSWedu in Austin, TX with colleagues from Catapult Leadership (http://www.catapultleadership.org/) on creating schools where autonomy, mastery and purpose shape personalized student experience. It's a great introduction to the core principles and practices of Montessori, Expeditionary Learning, and Game Design in the public school domain.
