Shifting Roles Enable Student-centered Learning | JFF Blog

In this blog, Clare Bertrand reflects on the “Powering Up Success” event on EdWeek in early October. 

 

“I loved this discussion–it is a great example of how technology integration can put the student in control of his or her own learning and also enable teachers to learn from their students. Technology helps to facilitate the notion that everyone in the classroom (whether that classroom is virtual or physical) is a learner.

 

Personalized learning, or student-centered learning, supports this notion of flexible roles for both teachers and students in the classroom. Barbara Cervone and Kathleen Cushman highlight how student-centered teachers see themselves as continual learners in their paper: Teachers at Work: Six Exemplars of Everyday Practice. They also stress the importance of a culture that employs common planning time and classroom observation as tools for innovation. Using these structures consistently and in a supportive manner (i.e., non-evaluative) are key to helping teachers reflect and respond to their students’ needs and shape their own continual learning agenda. Students also thrive when given leadership roles, are reminded that they bring knowledge and expertise into the classroom, and have the time to partake in self-guided knowledge discovery in any learning environment.”
