Scaffolding learning is important because it creates an environment where students are encouraged to be more independent in their learning, and to not constantly look to the Teacher for answers and instruction. By encouraging students to take responsibility for their learning, you create more resilient, independent students who will be able to apply this in all areas of their learning, now and in the future.

This training course provides a thorough understanding of Scaffolding as well as the actions and strategies to use in learning environments - specifically for Teachers.
