Student-Centered Learning: Building Agency and Engagement

This video from the Edutopia Schools That Work series shows student-centered learning at work at Maloney High School in Meriden Public Schools in CT.  Teachers discuss their role as facilitators and detail how student-centered learning tactics are used in their classrooms. These include:

  • Collaborative group work
  • Student choice
  • Inquiry-based activities
  • Authentic tasks

Powerful images and voices of students engaged in learning illustrate how each of these tactics comes to life in 12th-grade science and ELA classrooms. This visual of student-centered learning in action could be used as a discussion starter with a teacher team or shown to community and family members to gain support for school change.
