Student Centric Vision

Focusing on Students Instead of Content

Where teachers once gave students the information and asked questions to see if students remembered it, teachers now start by asking students essential questions. They then guide students through hands-on, real-world problem-solving experiences. Students build their own knowledge in a way that's meaningful to their lives. The oft heard question of the past, 'why will I ever need to know this,' is rarely uttered in a student-centric classroom.

This student-centred approach ensures all children can learn within a classroom of their peers. A blended learning approach, where students move seamlessly between face-to-face and digital learning environments provides students with multiple means of acquiring knowledge and of expressing what they've learned. And adaptive technologies help ensure learning is accessible to students of all abilities.

Students still work towards common learning outcomes in the programs of study set out by Alberta Education. But how they achieve these outcomes can be tailored to their individual needs, interests, and learning styles.
