Provide learners with more choices

Agency - Personal ownership of a powerful device like the iPad empowers learners to be more independent but teachers need to engineer the conditions for this to flourish by:

  • Providing learners with more opportunities to decide how to undertake a task, where to work on the task and at what pace.
  • Developing greater trust with learners to be independent learners.
  • Considering how to trust learners to use the iPad to research and locate infomration for themselves, reducing the role of the teacher as 'information giver'.
