Empower Students

• Students should be given a platform to voice their decision and thoughts. A public forum like Google Doc, Twitter hash tag, Edmodo site, blog etc improves ones teaching. It also explains students the emphasizing that learning is about partnership and working together.

• Teachers should work with students simultaneously.

• It can be incredibly empowering to encourage students bring their own devices and open up a new world of opportunities. It ensures that learning can happen anytime, anywhere.

• Students must be involved in real issues as they often complain that the subjects that are taught in class are not applicable in the real world.

Ultimately empowering students is about realizing how students and teachers are dependent on each other and they have a lot to learn from each other. As the saying goes “who dares to teach must never cease to learn”, empowering students help us to do just that.

Students need teachers who believe in them and empower them to discover and follow their dreams. They need teachers who can see beyond grades and unlock the potential of the whole child. They also need teachers who care about them as individuals and inspire them to grow. Not surprisingly, the best teachers are those who nurture and educate the whole child.

Here are some rules that the administrators of any organization can follow to empower students

– Students must be given the opportunity to teach in a classroom.
– Getting to know the hobbies of students keeping aside studies.
– Giving a voice to students in the classroom so they are able to provide proper feedback.
– It is not necessary to answer every question your student asks. Let other students try answering it first, or encourage them to think about it on their own.
– Identify students who excel in a subject and invite them to assist a fellow student who is struggling.
– Identify students who are helping those around them to be leaders.
– Look for quiet leadership. It’s not always the vocal students who are leaders.
– Create a culture of leadership that empowers all individuals.
– One must provide professional opportunities so that teachers develop a new way of thinking.
– Providing support to teachers by creating a mentoring system.
– Get to know your teachers more closely by learning about their passions and talents.
