This is fascinating – truly empowered students operating independently and designing their own learning. What a scary concept. We teacher may be somewhat uncomfortable “getting out of student’s way” and leaving them to their own devices. Perhaps that is our fear getting in the way. Still, the best way to connect with this generation is to allow them to take charge of their own learning and their own pace. As scary as it is, we must trust that they are capable of learning on their own, and we must trust that we have set up support structures strong enough to allow them to do so.
Fascinating stuff!
Thanks for sharing!
