The 4 C’s of Student-Centered Learning

Culture: How we do things here…The educational leaders of today will build a model for the future that allows for an extraordinary learning environment. To accomplish this goal we need to move the learning environment from a teacher-student competitive educational system, to a teacher-scholar collaborative educational system based around student engagement.
Climate: How it feels here… Move from the classroom where students are responsible for student success; to the collaborative learning environment where everyone is responsible for student success.
Context: How it looks here… Move from a passive teaching classroom; to an active learning environment.
Content: What we use here… Move from the classroom/library as a static repository of information transfer from the teacher; to a classroom/library as a dynamic learning center for knowledge and learning through technology.
