Student Centered Learning Grades K - 12 Teachers January 30, 2020 Student-centered learning moves students from passive receivers of information to active participants in their own discovery process. No more “Because I said so...” type of teaching; instead, learn how to effectively allow students to discover the how’s and why’s of education.

However, structure is still a necessary component of instruction.
