Independent is a place to learn by myself.
Independent learning requires learners to self-regulate and make decisions about their learning through:
- self organisation and time management
- choice in where they learn based on learning style and task
- accessing support and learning tools when required.
Independent learning can offer student choice in what they learn as well as the pace of learning.
Teachers become an ‘on-call facilitator’ during independent learning as learners access them as the need for guidance arises. Teachers will also need to monitor students during independent learning to support self-regulation skills and behaviour.
