Empowering our Learners: Using Book Creator to create a one-page profile
October 13 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT
We believe that each child is unique and needs to be seen, heard, understood, valued, and empowered to
- develop a positive self-image
- achieve agency in their learning
- self-advocate for who they are and how they learn
- realize their hopes and dreams
Join us for a special webinar with the team at Empower the Learner, with whom we have worked to create a specially designed template book in Book Creator. This FREE template will help guide you and your learners to identify who they are, how they learn, and what they aspire to be, packaged into a 1-page profile that learners can use to be advocates for their own learning.
