In language classrooms, instruction must focus on the learner and the learning process. The instructor has to create a learning environment where students participate in the learning process by establishing learning goals, developing and choosing learning strategies, and evaluating their own progress. As the video says, teacher must take into account the students interests and decide with them.
The main role of the teacher in LCI
The teacher is the learner facilitator who provides the resources to support the student success.
4 key principles of student centered learning.
- Learning is personalized: Each student has a space
- Learning is competency-based: Students reflect their needs
- Learning happens anytime, anywhere: Students lear beyond the classrooms. They need to explore their surroundings and learn from them.
- Students take ownership: They learn how to learn so teachers don't teach just guide the learning process.
