Learner-Centered Innovation with Katie Martin

In this episode, Dr. Katie Martin shares insights from her two books – Evolving Education: Shifting to a Learner-Centered Paradigm (2021) and Learner-Centered Innovation: Spark Curiosity, Ignite Passion and Unleash Genius (2018) as we discuss the changing role of the classroom teacher, how to empower students to take ownership of their own learning, and why school district leaders should look beyond the Portrait of a Graduate to take the next big step forward to create an action plan for student success. Dr. Martin also provides an overview of her consulting work and how she helps educators think differently about shifting from a traditional teaching model to one that inspires kids to find passion and curiosity through inquiry-based learning.
