Building a Learning Eco-System

Students At the Center!

A PLC Associates Inc. Signature Program

What is a Learning Eco-System? When we deconstruct the concept, an eco-system, by definition involves a number of elements that work synergistically together. Then, when we apply learning as a descriptor – our purpose becomes a very targeted and intense look at our structures, practices and systems form the learner’s perspective. Eye opening!
If we really want students to flourish, become “drivers of their own learning” and have every day in school be both engaging and dynamic, we must be keenly attuned to what our learners are actually experiencing.
Take advantage of this great offering – a “game changer” for our students.
