STUDENT AGENCY

Have you noticed that some school improvement initiatives have impact while others don’t improve student outcomes?

Student Agency is the key! When students have the motivation and ability to take ownership of their learning, outcomes improve dramatically.

Students with agency are more likely to learn deeply and to demonstrate persistence with learning tasks. They are more likely to enjoy their school work and be happier.

Student Agency can’t be taught, but it can be fostered by teachers who have mastered agentic learning and know how to support student autonomy, competence and relatedness.

TEACHER AGENCY

How can teachers foster agency in a classroom if they haven’t experienced it for themselves? If they feel like a cog in a machine rather than as an active agent? If they find their workplace demotivating?

Fostering a culture of teacher and student agency is crucial, but not simple.  Shifting district culture away from a command-and-control environment to a less controlling, more self-organizing culture is a critical step in supporting teachers in their own agency.

Our REFLECT app provides a convenient way to document teacher experiences that can be used to inform their own learning process on their way to becoming masters of Agentic Learning.

A convenient Dashboard provides individual and aggregated data by content area, grade level, and classroom that can inform the teacher, school or even district continuous improvement process.
