This webinar will be focused on student agency—making students active participants in their own learning. This is a major element in personalized learning and a critical component of 21st-century education. During this webinar, Jan Bryan, Ed.D., National Education Officer at Renaissance, will try to answer the questions: how do we promote agency in our classrooms and across our districts? And how can we help our students make thoughtful, informed decisions about their learning?
This research-based webinar will aim to show educators and participants how to use formative assessment to give students a greater stake in their own success. Some of the topics that will be explored are:
- Definitions of student agency, along with common misconceptions
- Formative assessment practices that make learning more meaningful and more purposeful
- Strategies for engaging students and increasing motivation
- Examples of effective agency in action
