Shifting to Learners at The Center

SHIFTING TO LEARNERS AT THE CENTER
Van Meter Schools | 520 1st Avenue,
Van Meter, IA 50261
June 19, 2018

The Center is holding a Summer Convening that will host student and educator presentations in an exploration of how we might re-imagine education.

CREATING SCHOOLS OF THE FUTURE

To make this Summer Convening meaningful for all attendees, we plan to have educational practitioners share their knowledge and experiences through hands-on sessions that model philosophies and practices from personalized learning, CBE, standards-based assessment and reporting (SBAR), blended, STEAM, work-based learning, community partnerships, and project-/problem-based learning (PBL), including the following strands:

  • Time is Variable: Students advance upon demonstrated proficiency

  • Deeper Learning: Students’ demonstration of competencies requires transfer of knowledge across content areas and/or beyond the classroom. 

  • Authentic Assessment: Students engage in assessment as a meaningful and positive learning experience. 

  • Just-in-Time-Supports: Students receive rapid, personalized support based on individual learning needs.

  • Anytime/Anywhere Learning (for adults and students): Students’ learning is validated regardless of when, where or how they acquire and/or demonstrate the learning.
