Independent Learning Model

Independent learning at Ohana is the shift of responsibility for the learning process from the teacher to the student. We encourage students to acquire an understanding of their learning styles and needs and provide support for them to structure their learning environment. Allowing students to develop a responsibility for their learning engages them in the process through ownership and mutual trust between the teacher and student. This self-directed learning model helps students learn to organize and prioritize while teachers facilitate the process in a guiding and supportive way.
