Agentic Launches Grant for Student-Centered Learning

Agentic Learning has launched a new competitive grant program offering two districts consulting, leadership coaching and software access designed to support the development of student-centered approaches to learning.

Agentic's program focuses on student and teacher intrinsic motivation, setting goals, fostering student and teacher agency and developing a formal improvement plan. The grant includes an assessment of intrinsic motivation, leadership coaching, workshops, the development of a formal plan and use of an app called REFLECT for one year.

"In most school districts, new innovations are implemented top-down, and teachers are treated as cogs in a machine, not given the agency they need to authentically put the deep substance of new pedagogies in place," said Marie Bjerede, President of Agentic Learning. "Instead, we help districts give teachers ownership over the path and pace they use to lead student agency and turbo-charge learning in their classrooms."

Applications for the grant are due March 1. Further details can be found on Agentic Learning's site.
