Learner Agency represents the degree to which an individual can take initiative to meaningfully influence their world – particularly in the face of challenges. Without agency we feel powerless, the victim of our circumstances. With it we feel powerful, the master of our circumstances. 

This keynote will show you how to ensure your students become powerful change agents in the world, able to take charge and face adversity with confidence and power. Importantly it will show you how to go about designing a meaningful program to develop Learner Agency in your school.

The approach to agency that will be explored in this keynote brings together three interrelated and equally important components: 

  1. The Environment to Act – The School
  2. The Will to Act – Mindset
  3. The Power to Act – Learnership

his powerful model is the missing link between shallow “voice and choice” models that merely give students permission, but not the power, to act. It describes how we change students to enable them to successfully confront challenges in their lives now and into the future. 

This keynote provides a road map for educators that want to create a school that empowers students to not only make choices in their world, but also to be able to successfully confront challenges, face adversity, and achieve their goals.

This keynote presentation sheds light on the significance of language equity beyond the confines of the classroom. Participants will delve into avenues for involving the entire school community, encompassing administrators, staff, families, and community members, in championing multilingual learners and fostering an inclusive language environment. The content will center on extending language equity across the entire school. Attendees will gain insights into establishing a school-wide culture that champions multilingualism, language diversity, and equal opportunities for language development.

At the core of The Mona Lisa Effect® is Matthew’s passionate and relentless belief that every single student, without exception or condition, should be able to “be seen, be heard, be known” and “belong”.

In this keynote, he will argue that data and assessment must not be cold or cruel, rushed or remote. Instead, he believes that they can, and must, remain kind and ‘warm’, ‘street’ and slow.

Kind because it is too easy unintentionally to commit small or large acts of violence. Warm because each and every student and school is an ecosystem, and we must embrace its complexity. Street because it is our moral duty to identify the margins in our school and listen to their stories. And slow because we simply do not have the time to hurry.

This is his argument for holism, and he cannot wait to share it with you.
