5 Steps to Empower Your Students
Educators can take many actions to empower students. Here are 5 ways to help empower your students…
A big part of developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills is asking questions. Encourage your students to always ask questions. Remember, you may need to spark some questions themselves.
Technology is growing more and more everyday, remember to be open to it! Eliminating barriers, such as technology barrier, equals GROWTH. And if you grow, you’re allowing your classroom and students to grow too. So, go on, take the plunge! With that said…
Give Your Students the Tools They Need
Try to incorporate as many tools as possible in the classroom, and see which ones your students like best.
Use Project-Based Learning
This approach takes real-world applications and combines it with different scenarios to teach students a variety of skills. This is a great (and FUN) way to take basic applications a step further and give students a huge amount of empowerment!
Take Off the Training Wheels
At some point, we have to take off the training wheels and let students guide themselves. We can only draw a learning path, guide them, and support them. Essentially it’s up to them to take their learning into their own hands.
