On Thursday, January 19, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) is hosting a Teacher Talk Webinar to share students’ insights on the importance of illuminating student voice in K-12 education.

Teachers will learn strategies to integrate student agency into pedagogical approaches, foster a culture around ownership, and better understand how to meet the needs of individual students to ensure post-secondary success.

iNACOL CEO Susan Patrick said, “By giving each student voice and choice in their education, teachers can provide more meaningful, relevant, powerful learning experiences, boosting achievement and success.”

This webinar is free to attend – participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.
