In this thoughtful article, the author, a veteran teacher, pushes the education community to define and deliver learning in a way that maximizes student agency. She defines learning as active, social, and meaningful. She encourages all stakeholders to see personalized and blended learning and differentiated instruction as interdependent components of great learning experiences that meet those three criteria, rather than separate approaches to learning.
This is a thought-provoking read for any interested stakeholder and could be used to start a conversation at the start of the school year with either a group of educators who want to ground their work or parents who want to understand student-centered learning.
