Talk / Developing Learning Agility

Learning styles • Learning agility

Developing approaches to learning skills becomes more important than ever through the schooling process. Learners must be equipped with skills and strategies that allow them to be thinkers, communicators, risk-takers, inquirers, reflective, caring, open-minded, balanced, principled and knowledgeable. One way to improve learnability is to align the objective (learning target), skill indicator, and strategy. Most importantly, we also need to take an evidence-based approach to monitor student progress and provide cognitive coaching conversation.
