Students can learn how to take ownership over their learning and progress through opportunities to use and understand their learning data. Tracking progress using simple, sustainable systems can give students an insight into their growth and help them set personal goals. Technology tools can often help teachers make this process even more sustainable by offering ways to gather and organize data efficiently.
