Learning and Teaching
The orange layer surrounding the core components are elements related to learning and teaching. The work of transforming schools from an industrial, assembly line model to a modern, learner-centered and learning focused approach must begin at the nexus of learning and teaching. By personalizing learning, we create a circumstance where we can take advantage of learner strengths. When we have a deep understanding of each learner, we can determine the correct blend of learning modalities and strategies to ensure success for each learner.
It involves much more than adopting an expanded set of instructional skills and strategies. It is not just one more thing that educators are asked to do. In reality, this transformation is about approaching the work of learning and teaching differently.
