Learning for themselves: putting the learner in the driver’s seat
Back to school or not back to school, that seems to be the question! It is still unsure what our classroom for the new school year will look like: face-to-face, online or maybe a bit of both? Now, maybe even more so than ever, it is key that we prepare young learners to take the driver’s seat: we need to enable them to learn for themselves. This webinar will look at what learning independently means and the importance of it before exploring some practical ideas to support young learners in managing their own learning.
