Brent on Powerful Learning:

 

What’s one strategy teachers can use to incorporate Powerful Learning?

“The Feedback Cycle. During the Feedback Cycle, students have a choice in how they show their understanding of the content they are trying to master. By engaging in conversations with students, I can guide them to resources that support their learning. This practice helps to improve student communication and ensures that they have a safe space to exchange ideas that help strengthen their learning. Students can also support each other in this process by giving each other feedback, which results in the discourse being a source of support and nurturing.”

Ask Brent about:

“Self-paced learning, engaging students in their learning and promoting discourse in the classroom!”
