Today's complex, fast-moving world demands workers who are constantly learning, can think flexibly, aren't afraid to make mistakes and change direction, and can contribute at the highest level of their individual talents. Today's education system, however, isn't designed to nurture those qualities.
This book shares an easily scalable learning framework, Relational Learning, that nurtures exactly those qualities—the genius within each learner—without requiring major changes in resource allocation or school curriculum. Incorporating the best of many modern pedagogies, Relational Learning enables each learner to practice and ingrain positive learning habits, while taking advantage of the brain's natural reward system to spark enjoyment for learning any subject.
Author Erika Twani, Founder of Learning One to One and a former executive at Microsoft and Oracle, has helped schools around the globe implement the Relational Learning Framework. She has witnessed its success and scalability in low-income and high-income communities; for children of all types of backgrounds; with few or abundant resources; in urban and rural schools; in virtual, in-person, and homeschooling environments; and with a variety of curriculums.
In this book, you will learn the framework and why it works, along with specific step-by-step strategies and tactics that any teacher can use to realize each of their students' full potential.
