As education leaders, we often talk about student agency—making students active participants in their own learning. This is a major element within personalized learning and a critical component of 21st century education.
So how do we promote agency in our classrooms and across our districts? And how can we help our students make thoughtful, informed decisions about their learning?
Attend this research-based edWebinar for the answers. Jan Bryan, Ed.D., National Education Officer at Renaissance, will show you how to use formative assessment to give students a greater stake in their own success. You’ll explore:
- Definitions of student agency, along with common misconceptions
- Formative assessment practices that make learning more meaningful and more purposeful
- Strategies for engaging students and increasing motivation
- Examples of effective agency in action
This edWebinar will be of particular benefit to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, assessment directors and coordinators, curriculum directors and coordinators, and instructional coaches and specialists. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
