Independent Learners

This section will help you develop independent learners. Independent learning most commonly reflects the idea of ‘self-regulated learning’ and often links with approaches such as personalisation and ownership of learning. 

Strong relationships between teachers and peers are vital to establish a conducive environment.

Autonomous students have well developed cognitive skills such as focusing of memory and attention and problem-solving as well as a strong meta-cognitive awareness and skills such as those associated with an understanding of how learning occurs, and affective skills related to feelings and emotions.
