Shifting to a Learner-Centered Paradigm
In Evolving Education, Dr. Katie Martin creates a purposeful, personalized, authentic, and competency-based Learner-centered education experiences that helps students develop skills that will empower them to learn, grow, and solve problems that matter to them and others. Evolving Education offers a deep dive into how educators can harness new technologies, learning sciences, and pedagogy that center learners and learning. Martin argues that if we truly want to develop knowledge, habits, and skills in students, we must know them, love them, and help them see the full beauty of who they are and what they can become.
“Evolving Education clearly articulates how to redefine success, create powerful learning experiences, and support them with enabling conditions. This would make a great book study for any school faculty or community group.”Tom Vander Ark, CEO of Getting Smart
