Agency and empowerment

Posted on: April 11, 2019

I clarified some of my own thinking while providing feedback on some essays that focused on integrating edtech.

I found myself highlighting the importance of learner agency and empowerment. Then I wondered if there was a difference between the two. I think there is.

Agency is giving learners the opportunities to make decisions. Empowerment is enabling them to take meaningful and self-driven action.
