SL - Student-Centered Learning: Paradigm Shift or Incremental Change?

You know the story: Rapid advances in technology have revolutionized industries around the world, but schools still operate largely in the same manner as those that existed decades ago. Every few years another well-intentioned program is hailed as the cure-all for what ails our schools. But when we look back we find the results amount to little more than incremental improvement to policy or practice. Student-centered learning (SCL) is the latest reform being offered as a method to improve education. There are a growing number of schools in our region and around the country that believe that SCL environments have the potential to significantly improve student engagement and achievement. How we define and implement SCL practices may determine if this is another educational fad or the dawn of a new paradigm of learning. In this session, participants will be challenged to dig deeper into the meaning of SCL by examining its components -- personalization, anytime anywhere learning, student ownership, and competency-based learning -- and think about how the implementation of SCL practices could transform learning for all of our students.
