THE LEARNING-POWERED COACH
The relationship that is forged between the teacher, or ‘learning mentor’, and the student is central to a student’s engagement in the process of ‘Learning to Learn’. The teacher’s objective is to enthuse the student to better understand how they learn and to ensure that they take that enthusiasm with them as they leave classrooms behind. The ELLI profile is the catalyst to those introductory conversations, conversations that are instrumental in creating the platform for treating learning as a skill for life.
The fact that learning is the key to coping with the many changes that students will encounter in their future lives is a critical message within every conversation and its significance illustrated by discussion not only of a student’s present experiences but those of the teacher too.
