Advocating for needed support from teachers, peers, technology and other sources

Partner with learners to identify and document the likely resources they will need to support their learning

Coach learners to identify needs and advocate for those needs to be met

Document available, suitable resources needed in learning plans and how these resources can be accessed autonomously

Clarify any expectations or instructions related to learners’ autonomous accessing of needed resources (e.g., Internet access, nature and frequency of access to peers, and independent problem-solving steps prior to seeking teacher support)

Position teacher role based on the learning needs of learners (e.g., director, facilitator, mentor)

Refrain from immediately offering support and solutions when learners begin to struggle, and encourage learners to seek help from peers, technology and other sources to answer questions and resolve problems with their own resources
