Welcome to the Colorado Learner's Bill of Rights Wiki!


We welcome input and ideas from educators.

Please use the navigation on the right side to view each individual right, and post examples of what this looks like in the library or classroom.  Share a story about how this helps transform student learning, and pave the way for 21st century learning in your school.

  1.  question and be curious.
  2. have personal ideas.
  3. choose how to learn and share understanding.
  4. plan and participate in learning at appropriate levels
  5. grapple with challenging ideas or concepts.
  6. access the information and resources needed.
  7. participate in and contribute to a learning network.
  8. think critically, solve problems and make decisions.
  9. make mistakes and learn from them.
