About The Learner’s Toolbox
This is a site for learners and those who facilitate learning. The current purpose of the site is to illustrate aspects of learning from different points of view–students, teachers, administrators, coordinator, and parents.
Aloha used this site with MYP students early in its inception. On May 1, 2015, the site’s name was changed from “The MYP Toolbox” to “The Learner’s Toolbox” to reflect a wider, more inclusive focus on learning.
The views expressed in this site do not necessarily reflect those of our employers.
