  • Student Centered Learning The fundamental principle behind student-centered learning is the belief that different students learn in different ways. Using technology to tailor learning to each student’s style and interests, we can ensure the success of all students. By expanding learning opportunities beyond the walls of the classroom, we can make the learning process more relevant to the real world. We believe that innovative, rigorous, and year-round student-centered approaches like these will prepare all learners to meet the economic, social, and educational challenges that we face together as a society.
