Keeping Learners Engaged with Student-Led Learning

Written by SmartLab Learning

With our approach, students are in charge of their own learning. Abigail Welch, the SmartLab Facilitator at Lincoln Christian School in Tulsa tells us:

The SmartLab HQ has given our students the tools they need to take learning into their own hands. Our students have made amazing progress in their problem-solving skills, have learned how to set effective personal goals, and are constantly testing the bounds of what is possible by collaborating on exciting ideas.

Welch’s student, Jenna, shares her thoughts.

My favorite part of the SmartLab HQ is self-directed learning. Students are able to work on things they are actually interested in and I believe having this opportunity facilitates higher student engagement. After all, it is more enjoyable to learn about things you are interested in and enjoy doing.
