It was so much fun to co-facilitate the AERO workshop: “Student Agency: Empowering Kids to Follow Their Own Learning Journey” with Jill Keltner and Teresa Draguicevich. I appreciated the opportunity to work with these two talented educators on this topic, which is near and dear to my heart. Jill introduced me to this concept last year, and I’ve been having fun working through the process with my students and in my own life. In the workshop, we explored how agency impacts our lives. Then, working on case studies in small groups, we explored how facilitating learner agency increases motivation, deepens learning, and aids in all of us becoming self-directed life long learners.
