Imagine a classroom where every student is actively engaged in the progression of a lesson, where students take ownership over their own learning, and where critical thinking skills are in constant development. What you’re imagining is a Student Centred Learning environment, an approach to instruction that flips the traditional “sage-on-the-stage” teaching model on its head. This vision might seem idealistic — to cultivate that level of student agency, engagement, and intrinsic motivation is almost Utopian.
It is an ambitious goal: but a worthwhile one. With the right tools and the right mindset, it’s totally possible.
