To successfully support students and educators as learning models change, educators should provide: 

  • predictability in what to expect and how to engage in learning,
  • flexibility by allowing teachers to adjust established structures and routines, 
  • student empowerment by allowing students to take ownership of and be self-directed in their learning, 
  • connection by embedding collaboration and discourse into everyday structures and routines.
