:: Pupil power: growing independent learners ::
Outline
Are pupils passengers in their learning journey, or are they the captains of their own ship? It is known that powerful learners are autonomous agents in their education, yet sometimes pupils develop a passivity that leads them to be very reliant on teacher input, validation and feedback. This can lead to pupils becoming more risk averse and more susceptible to having a discouraging mindset about their own capabilities and growth. Let's find a way to put them firmly at the helm. This course looks at classroom approaches that empower pupils to build their self-efficacy and independence by placing them in the driving seat of their own learning. Delegates will discuss activities and strategies to cultivate curiosity, courage, reflectiveness and an awareness of how they can improve and persevere in the face of challenges and setbacks. Delegates will be taking a journey through the world of mindsets, collaborative approaches, self-assessment, pupil-voice and much more, all with the underlying support of pastoral methods to inform the growing of self-worth, esteem and resilience. Let's turn "I can't" into "I can" and show our pupils the power that is in their hands!
