In this episode, Empowerment Starts Here with Nikhil Goyal. Nikhil talks about the impetus to school reform. It all started as a high school student and knowing that his needs as a learner were not being addressed. Nikhil started researching alternative models for teaching and learning and learned about the progressive movement (such as constructivism) that centers students in the learning process and allows learners to make meaning of their worlds. Power in this episode is connected to individual learners and the discussion questions the role of power in the learning process.
