Self-Directed Learning: How to Build the Skills

Self-Directed Learning is a growing area of development in curriculum world-wide. IB students are expected to  be self-directed and active agents in their learning. The ACE Learning Principles expect students to be self-directed and engaged with and responsible for their learning. We will explore how the appropriate skills can be developed in any and all subjects.
