Question:

Answer:

I see technology integration as a tool to enhance learner-centered techniques in the classroom. For instance, learning can extend beyond the classroom through online discussion boards and wiki websites. These technological tools serve to engage students with course content, transfer their knowledge, increase collaborative problem-solving, and provide immediate feedback using digital assessment programs. Additionally, digital tools make learning accessible for students who cannot attend face-to-face instruction or students needing extra support from their peers or course instructor.

Question:

How does peer-to-peer feedback contribute to a learner-centered environment?

Answer:

Although peer-to-peer feedback and teacher-to-student feedback are critical to promoting a learner-centered classroom and improving student learning, student-to-teacher feedback is equally important. Specifically, feedback empowers students by giving them a voice and feeling as co-creators of the classroom. In addition, student feedback provides the educator with helpful information to transform the setting and enhance students’ learning. In the final analysis, the learner-centered approach is an essential framework for furthering students’ innovation and autonomy to achieve success in the 21st-century.

Answer:

Learner-centered teaching prioritizes the student, including their needs, interests, and abilities. In a learner-centered environment, students are actively involved in their learning while the teacher adopts a facilitative role by sparking and nurturing students’ innate curiosity to learn. In addition, learner-centered educators encourage students to set goals, monitor their progress, participate, and become autonomous learners. Lastly, learner-centered instructors communicate high expectations of students, provide constructive and timely feedback, prioritize in-depth learning over high grades, and employ scaffolding techniques to promote students’ self-efficacy and autonomy.
