BREAKOUT SESSION 3 – Letting students ‘choose their own lesson’
Target audience Yr 7-12

What if you gave students the choice of how to learn? What if you gave them options for how to complete a lesson? Technology provides teachers with a unique opportunity to create learning experiences which specifically target the individual learning styles of their students. When done successfully, students are able to direct their own learning through activities that ‘meet them where they’re at’. This session will help attendees find easy ways of creating such lessons and it will provide teachers with additional resources to take back to their own classrooms.
