Imagine a school in which learners determine the time and pace of their learning: a learner-centered environment where students personalize their educational goals and make meaningful decisions about their learning experiences. In Louisenlund’s IB World School students collaborate weekly with their faculty mentors to design a personalized schedule that meets their own learning needs. This session will introduce participants to best practices in place in a learning community committed to student agency and metacognitive competence. Participants will brainstorm further ideas for transforming their schools into learning communities in which students can design their own story.
