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:
- The Environment to Act – The School
- The Will to Act – Mindset
- 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.
