Student Led Conference plays a vital role in the journey of Inquiry Based Learning, as it gives a platform to the students to reflect and exhibit their learning and skills, evaluate their progress and empowers them to own the accountability of their own learning.
As the name implies students took the lead role during the conference for sharing selected pieces of their work, discussing next steps and setting goals for future. After days of preparation and hard work, students were all set for the conference. Filled with confidence, students independently took their parents for a gallery walk through the Art Exhibition and the various learning stations. Beginning with talks about their learning through the unit of Inquiry using the inquiry cycle till showcasing of their collection of work in portfolio all helped the parents to gain an insight about their child's strengths and weaknesses. The whole process helped the students to become self aware and explicitly link their academic learning with future planning; skills essential for lifelong learning and self determination.
The conference culminated with authentic parent's feedback and teacher's reflection about the learners' progress. Overall, the conference helped in building up a strong bond between students, parents and teachers which will further help the students in taking up the responsibility and designing their own bright future in the coming years.
