The Path to Higher Ed: Building College and Career Readiness
Justin Aglio, Growth Mindset + Open Learning = Innovation
Justin Aglio, Director of Innovation and K-4 Academic Achievement, joins us to talk about how the core values of Montour School District create a culture of teacher autonomy and student-centered learning. To better understand learner needs, the district engages in challenge discovery and student shadowing. As a result of this engagement, MSD has structured its schools to encourage exploratory learning and even allows for 40 minutes of unstructured time for teachers to instruct on any topic of their choosing. MSD’s culture also pushes self-discovery and agency through calculated risk-taking and the adoption of growth mindsets.
