Your students come from varying social, cultural, and academic backgrounds; how can you help them grow their own leadership of their journey into adulthood? This practice-minded course looks at student agency as a multi-faceted skill that can be grown and shaped. It also looks at how technology, like Google Classroom, can practice this skill within a lesson. You will examine different dimensions of student agency including setting advantageous goals, initiating action toward those goals, reflection and revision, and internalizing self-efficacy. This course is part of the Podcast PD series.
