Defining Student-Centered Learning

This two-page overview of student-centered learning was developed by Meriden Public Schools based on the Nellie Mae Education Foundation’s, Putting Students at the Center: A Reference Guide. It provides short descriptions of the main tenets of student-centered learning: student-owned, personalized, occurs anytime, anywhere, and is mastery-based. It also details what students and teachers should look for at their school or organization, to identify the tenets in action.

This overview could be useful for educators to share with families, students, or community members who are new to the ideas of student-centered learning in order to gain support for changes at their school.
