Giving students charge of how they learn

Teachers must embrace their students' capacity to learn through leading when given the chance -- as it has been suggested by a lot of leading schools. Letting students take charge of how they learn leads to high engagement, in-depth inquiry, and quality work. There are various ways by which it can be in most effective manner and then education becomes fun for students. Some of the most popular ways are as follows:-

Technology based learning targets

There are many apps and tools that students can use to demonstrate understanding of concepts in any subject. Give them the outcome result and charge them with the challenge to use any available tools via high and low tech. Students could develop a 10- to 20-minute documentary, podcast commentary, or staged debate on a social media platform. Each task requires research analysis of different viewpoints by authors and social media commentators. Students develop a well-reasoned script that goes through several revisions before the final production, this ways students actually learn and reach to the depth of the topic.

Independent learning

The students should be given two days designing and developing ideas that fuels their passions. For example a group of students can play percussion instruments for hours, experimenting with beats and sounds. While not sticking to the ground rules they can play with drumsticks on a variety of surfaces and not just on drum kit. Or in a science room, students can built motorized vehicles, while a student in some other room can attempted to explain the abstract science concepts behind the chapter that teachers have provided them. Teachers should coach or provide the muscle that students requested to attain their vision.

When teachers trust students to lead their learning by giving more open-ended opportunities that challenge them to find their way, students will delve deeper into content and set their expectations higher than is required.
