It’s Time for (#November)Change

4515043369_311a0e502b_mYesterday I had the good fortune to be an attendee at another ItsLearning webinar featuring Alan November. I pretty much jump at any chance I can get to listen to or read something by this great educator.

This week’s webinar was titled, “Putting Pedagogy in the Driver’s Seat”. The big idea and take away from this is that we need to redefine the role of the learners and as teachers we need to shift control to our students. As teachers, we are often the ones who design and deliver problems for our students to solve; we need to teach our students how to ask the right questions, how to find and design their own problems to solve, and how to self-assess.

You can view the Storify here, then we can talk about how we are going to begin letting go of control.
