Let Students Know They Matter

See on Scoop.itK-12 School Libraries

When kids understand that the world needs them to be people of substance and to accomplish great things in the world they step up to the challenge.

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

I love this concept and I think it is the biggest piece of the puzzle that seems to be missing when we adhere to the factory model style of instructional delivery. Do students feel like they matter if they are treated as a cog in a wheel or a student id? All the ed tech in the world will not replace the human-to-human relationship between a student and the teacher who believes in that student’s potential and helps him/her to feel like they matter.
