June 24th, 12:30–1:30pmPST: Developing Student Ownership through Strategic Learning Practices
True success in education requires students to go beyond just doing or understanding school—they must own their learning. This means giving students the authority, capacity, and responsibility to own their learning.— in other words, developing student ownership. Throughout this session, participants will clarify the research on student ownership and explore the practical tools that empower students to build the skills they need to own their own learning while answering the following questions:
- What is student ownership and why is it imperative?
- How can you and your staff develop student ownership?
- How can we help you and your staff develop student ownership?
Can you imagine building an environment full of motivated, engaged, and eager students who own their learning?
