Identity: The On-Ramp to Learner Empowerment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The research from the learning sciences tells us that “Identity is at the core of adolescent social and emotional learning.” Knowing one’s identity includes who I am, how I learn (using the UDL Lens) and what I aspire to be. With this understanding, each learner is empowered to know and value their variability and uniqueness so they can develop the skills and practices to support and enhance their learning in the classroom or remote learning environment. In this session, participants will learn how to create an Empower the Learner Profile of a learner they know so they discuss how they can empower the learner with tools, skills and practices to become agents and self-advocates of their own learning.
