There is no doubt that self-directed learning will be a crucial skill for students and professionals in the future (many would say it already is). The ability to access, process, and learn from a variety of sources will push our learning, our knowledge and abilities, and our opportunities to the next level.
Students in Upper Elementary gain direct practice with "microcredentialing" (badges). First exposure happens in the classroom, then the sky is the limit for our self-directed learners!
