Children are innately curious. To successfully engage all students, educators can tap into this curiosity, allowing students to direct their own learning experiences.
Students need the support of teachers to think critically, communicate creatively, design innovatively, collaborate globally and identify resources to make sense of the world.
Teachers can only provide the support students need if they are empowered to do so. Teachers will be the heart of any successful education reform effort.
The role of administrators and policymakers is to empower teachers. The modern organization in all sectors is one where leadership enables its teams.
Data collection and accountability systems are a key tool for empowering teams. Educators and policy makers should evaluate their systems with this in mind.
Together we can transform schools into places where all are empowered to learn.
