Students Owning Learning

James Klassen (@Hokeydadjk) shared a link to an education article 7 Essential Questions That Guide School Improvement by Steven Weber, Curriculum Director/Specialist from Hillsborough, NC.

One of the principal questions Weber asks in his article is "Who owns the learning?"

"The question is simple, yet complex. When I see a Makey-Makey lab or Genius Hour, students own their learning. When I visit a Career and Technical Education (CTE) class, students are designing and creating. When I see students working in collaborative teams and challenging each other’s ideas, I see deep learning."

It's great to see creative tech incorporated into the school curricula, and it's encouraging that educators are also seeing value in this trend and are advocating for its broader implementation.
