Matt Byrnes, Head of School at Wooster School, recently wrote an article for Independent School magazine.
His remarks included “It is an exciting time to be an independent school leader. With the growing body of knowledge about brain science and how people learn, new insights into behavior and psychology, and advances in technology, the opportunities for school improvement and better teaching and learning seem nearly limitless.
“At Wooster School (CT), we are applying methodologies generated by advances in personalized and relationship-based learning, mastery-based assessment, and project-based learning,” he added. “We’ve also been exploring new scheduling, technology, and configuration options, which allow us to develop greater agency and independence in students, while also improving skill and disposition development through stronger learning relationships between teachers and students.”
