Looking At Student Centered Instruction

Big image

What do the learning environments look like in the classroom?

Sometimes understanding the big picture involves looking beyond the obvious. Sometimes getting to the root of strengths and weaknesses in the classroom requires asking strategic, in-depth questions and hearing honest answers. Are students immersed in positive learning experiences? Are they connecting content to real-life situations? How do they react to classroom rules and expectations? Are they willing to take risks with learning?

eleot is learner-centric observation tool that measures and quantifies active student engagement by taking a look at classroom expectations, feedback and learning support.

The eleot focuses on seven key learning environments that promote effective learning and student success:

  • equitable learning
  • high expectations
  • supportive learning
  • active learning
  • progress monitoring and feedback
  • well-managed learning
  • digital learning
