Safe Learning Environment through Inside the School publication

Safe Learning Environments

Learn how to use technology to teach in the classroom


CD/Transcript CoverWhen students enter the classroom, it’s the teacher who is in control. The teacher selects the learning objective, the teacher chooses the materials, and the teacher develops learning activities to match the objectives.

Students sit in rows, fill out worksheets, and take standardized tests. Or they resist and at best become disengaged, or at worst cause others to become disengaged.

We ask students: How much have you learned?

But, really, we should be asking: How may I serve you?

Educators are often uncomfortable with the shift from a teacher-centered classroom to a student-centered one. Subconsciously, they are reluctant to give up their teacher power, teacher control, and teacher authority.

The best learning environment is one where teachers strengthen the emotional and social bonds with their students. In this kind of learning environment, students are engaged in the content and problem solving methods instead of disengaging and resisting the learning process.

Inside the School’s upcoming online seminar Safe Learning Environments will review the philosophical backbone that strengthens the strategies to employ relational teaching and learning. The seminar will discuss the power of service to one another and the possibilities of innovative and creative thinking exemplified in the classroom. 

Teachers will see immediate positive behaviors and strengthen relationships from implementing strategies explained in this seminar.
