When I was a teacher I'd often get the question, 'Why do I need to learn this?' I'd give them lots of 'because' answers. Now it is great to see this post that has 75 questions that students can ask to help them take charge of their learning experiences.

Questions Students Can Ask Themselves Before, During, And After Teaching

Are there questions students can ask themselves while you're teaching? Questions that can guide their thinking before, during, and after your teaching?

Experiential learning is something we do at our Genius Camps. Our Genius Campers get to engage in learning challenges & activities as 'student-centered' teams. They get to reflect on what has happened and subsequently increase their skills and capabilities to contribute to their communities.

Getting Ready for the Age of Experiential Education - The Edvocate

Spread the loveAs education continues to evolve, experiential education has been on the rise across K-12 schools and higher education. According to the Association for Experiential Education, this type of education is defined as “a teaching philosophy” that informs many methodologies in which educators purposefully engage with learners in direct experience and focused reflection in order to increase knowledge, develop skills, clarify values, and develop people’s capacity to contribute to their communities.” In other words, experiential education can be thought of as learning by doing, or incorporating more hands-on work and concrete experiences into the curriculum.

A focus that is student-centred can lead to ownership, commitment, journaling their learning journey, having choice, developing a positive mindset. Check out the strategies in this article.

Seven Strategies to Keep Students Motivated All Year Long

Students aren't always aware of the progress they are making or how their emotions affect their learning throughout the year. These strategies can help make those things visible to them.

This idea by a teacher is how she checks in with her students. The kids write their name ON THE BACK of a sticky note and place it on the chart. During the week she talks privately to each child to check how they are going and if they need to talk about something that is happening in their life.

This teacher's viral 'check-in' board is a beautiful example of mental health support

Update: We have found the teacher who created the mental health check-in board! Kudos to Erin Castillo for the brilliant idea and for sharing how she's using it to help kids. She is offering a free download of the board as a poster along with instructions for utilizing it on Teachers Pay Teachers. T...

    So timely for all of the conversations I've had with several of my school leadership teams over the past few weeks as we are now into the school year and beyond the "honeymoon/chaos" of the back to school time. Humans require the same level of love and grace no matter where you spend time with them...to build and grow trust it happens in the micro-moments. What micro-moments are you grateful for from today that helped grow trust within your school?

    I totally agree Sandi, to provide a supportive learning environment for our children, we must first do that for ourselves as teachers/educators. In every early childhood centre I have supported to improve outcomes for children, our first and primary focus was on leadership and teachers for sustainable change to happen.
