Autonomous Learning

Autonomous Learner Model
The Autonomous Learner Model, designed by Betts, aims at developing students’ self-learning attitude and skills by focusing on their needs of self-recognition, social and affective skills. The 5 sections of the Autonomous Learner Model are: Orientations, Individual Development, Enrichment Activities, Seminars, and In-Depth Study.

Service-Learning
Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruc-tion and reflection to enrich the learn-ing experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

Through service-learning, young people—from kindergarteners to college students—use what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems. They not only learn the practical applications of their studies, they become actively contributing citizens and community members through the service they perform.

What Service-Learning Looks Like
If school students collect trash off the shores of Lake Lanier, they are providing a valued service to the community as volunteers. If school students collect trash from Lake Lanier, analyze their findings to determine the possible sources of pollution, and share the results with residents of the neighbor-hood, they are engaging in service-learning.
