Student-Centered Learning: Exploration, Storytelling, and Inquiry

We hear a lot about putting students at the center of their own learning, but what does that mean? And what does it take to do that? National Geographic Learning Social Studies programs bring exploration and storytelling into the classroom, inspiring students to find their own direction and share their experiences. Special features in our programs shine a spotlight on the kinds of current projects that make National Geographic a leading source of scientific discovery. Dr. Fred Hiebert, Explorer and Archaeologist-in-Residence, will share some of those discoveries and the power of those stories for students.

Fred, along with Marcie Goodale, Product Director for K12 Social Studies and AP Social Sciences, will talk about Student Inquiry Projects, but it’s more than that. They’ll talk about empathy and empowerment and—ultimately—agency for students.

  • Hear from a National Geographic Explorer about the value of exploration and how it translates into Social Studies programs
  • Recognize the impact of storytelling in the classroom
  • Learn about Student Inquiry Projects that give students a forum for telling their own stories
