The needs of today's students in the 21st century present a significant and unique challenge. Never before have educators been confronted with so many questions about what is essential to learn, with such a short amount of time in which to learn it.
Consideration of student perceptions of levels of engagement, when selecting learning activities and targeting student-centered accountability practices, are directly linked to the quality of learning experiences and outcomes.
Teachers, acting as facilitators, are in a better position to motivate students to take responsibility for problem solving whatever obstacles may exist in achieving desired learning outcomes. Student-centered accountability practices can actively challenge students to want to track and respond to ongoing feedback throughout their learning process.
