Making Learning Visible

Learn More

The teacher is the designer of the learning experience. The students are makers, creators and doers. Make the process of their experience visible by documenting and sharing the journey.

Dewey said “We do not learn from experience… we learn from reflecting on experience.” Design opportunities for your students to reflect deeply on their learning experiences and make them visible through journals, blogs, student-led conferences and presentations of learning.

Students who make, create and do things that matter share their work with peers, parents and the public. Design celebrations of learning and exhibitions with your students to make learning visible with high quality artifacts they are proud of. Create portfolios and storytelling as evidence of learning.
