There are a variety of ways to offer student-centered learning, self-guided is the one this literature review examined. Through research, a classroom with a self-guided system should include a way for students to access new content without needing the instructor. There should be a way to practice the new skill(s) and check their understanding with formative assessments. These assessments should be self-graded, so the students get immediate feedback. It is also beneficial for students to use the content to collaborate with peers and/or play games to solidify the newly acquired skill(s). During all of this, the students should have the ability to choose where they want to sit within the classroom, possibly with nontraditional furniture options.
