Learner-Centered Education in Remote Learning
September 18th, 2020
One of the researchers we follow as school designers and innovators is Katie Martin. She is the author of Learner-Centered Innovation and other publications and writes a regular blog. One of her latest blog posts highlights 10 Characteristics of Learner-Centered Education in Remote Learning. We are proud to note that Compass’s model for learning hits every target she notes, whether we are learning remotely or in person!
- Goals and Accountability (sounds like a mentor meeting!)
- Personal (sounds like a CARE project!)
- Agency (sounds like independent project design in Venture!)
- Inquiry-Based Learning (Compass)
- Collaboration (It’s in our name, ya’ll!)
- Authentic (community-engaged learning keeps it real)
- Critique and Revision (we call it feedback and revision and it’s in our DNA)
- Productive Struggle (it’s how human’s learn)
- Models (we call them provocations and exemplars and they are really helpful in teaching kids how to think about big, gnarly problems!)
- Reflection (this is where the learning gets stored in the long-term memory!)
Stay tuned for more insights on how Compass is hitting the targets of creating uniquely impactful learning opportunities for all of our students!
