Self-directed learning is an approach to education that allows students to choose what and how they learn. Similar to unschooling or interest-led learning, it is a powerful method for real learning that is especially helpful for kids who are non-traditional learners or even resistant to learning.
Self-directed learning advocate and expert, Blake Boles. Blake is the author of the book: Why Are You Still Sending Your Kids to School: The case for helping them leave, chart their own paths, and prepare for adulthood at their own pace.
In this interview we talk about what self-directed learning is and why it is a powerful method for teaching all kids, not just kids with learning differences.
