The Empowered Learner

What is an Empowered Learner?

Students leverage technology to take an active role in choosing, achieving, and demonstrating competency in their learning goals, informed by the learning sciences.

Students articulate and set personal learning goals, develop strategies leveraging technology to achieve them and reflect on the learning process itself to improve learning outcomes.

Students build networks and customize their learning environments in ways that support the learning process.

Students use technology to seek feedback that informs and improves their practice and to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways.

Students understand the fundamental concepts of technology operations, demonstrate the ability to choose, use and troubleshoot current technologies and are able to transfer their knowledge to explore emerging technologies.
