Far too often people underestimate the capabilities of our youngest learners. Come learn how a group of keen and curious six, seven, and eight-year-old students are playing an active role in their learning journey. We will explore the benefits and drawbacks of clearly laid out learning intentions, the importance of co-creating success criteria, and the use of strategies which help our young learners successfully self-assess. We will also explore student portfolios as a means to communicate student learning and the important role students, teachers, and parent(s) play. You will leave this session with practical strategies (with and without technology use) that will help the youngest learners play an active role in their education. Remember, you’re never too young to self-assess.
