The Educator focuses on how to best bridge the gap between prior experience and new knowledge, while recognizing that every student drive their own learning with the appropriate support. The Educator does not question the student from the standpoint of rigid disciplinary knowledge, but from the place of encouraging student exploration.
This means that the Educator asks exploratory questions (both cognitive and experiential) that engender students seeking answers independently in a true self-paced learning process. They must be the person that guides the student so that he/she can find a solution for a question or issue he/she has. The Educator becomes the person that makes it possible for the student to find alternatives for solving his/her own inquiries, the facilitator of the learning process.
The Student Learning Manager
Student Learning Managers provide permanent guidance at school that takes into account their personal characteristics and socio-emotional realities. Student Learning Managers guide the student towards the best strategies to organize and develop tasks and to highlight the student’s personal characteristics, which will allow them to achieve self-awareness of his/her own skills, strengths, and challenges. The Student Learning Manager is in charge of providing guidance, support, and advice during the learning process so they can perform well in their academic and personal lives. The Student Learning Manager also promotes and enables students to acquire good work and learning habits.
As the person in charge of learning skill development and work discipline, the Student Learning Manager supports the student to make his/her own decisions such as time management and goal-setting, which helps the student learn how to make commitments and fulfill responsibilities.
