Redwood City School District Core Elements of an Empowered Learner Program Report 2022

To develop and promote new digitally augmented learning activities that are responsive to their actual classrooms, the Redwood City School District (RCSD) enacted a new model of professional development, now called the “Empowered Learning Program”.  This guide was developed through a collaboration between the RCSD and Stanford University to identify the core elements of the program to support other teams, departments, and school districts in developing similar programs. The guide is a collection of the core elements of the program, supported by observation, teacher feedback, and program documents.
