Myron Dueck, Vice Principal and Teacher, School District 67, British Columbia, Canada
In this humorous, fast-paced, and broadly relevant session, Myron Dueck will start with the unmistakable reality that we are all different in our competencies, passions, skills, and learning styles. Considering this reality, we need to make learning personal, meaningful, and relevant. Essential to this goal is asking the student for input when reporting on standards. In an era of Facebook and Trip Advisor, where feedback from the user is considered essential information, how often do we ask students for their opinions on grading, assessment, reporting, or relationships? In this session, Dueck will argue that it is time to promote competencies such as critical thinking, communication, and personal awareness by asking students about their opinions and experiences as they relate to learning. By offering the views of real students, and incorporating tools to gather evidence of learning, Dueck will present the case that students have much to share about their understanding—and it is time for educators to listen very carefully.
