Small Shifts, Big Impact: Closing the Gap to Empowered Learning

363 views

Published on

How large is the gap that truly exists between the real and ideal for learners? Are there ways to “tweak” (small shift) content-driven instruction that will enlist students as deep questioners, critical thinkers and effective problem-solvers (big impact)? What if we created a “Destination Postcard” of the ideal learner, and designed learning experiences from there? Join this Switch-inspired think-tank on lesson design strategies that empower students to think and act their way to the acquisition and connection of content while developing learning dispositions.
