In today’s VUCA world, learners need to use co-constructive talk to learn about the lives, values, and beliefs of others. Through dialogues, students learn to suspend their defensive exchanges and examine why those exchanges exist. Seeking perspectives and discussion of differences of opinions have proved to enhance both academic improvement and reasoning skills. Teachers who create spaces for learners to explore, wait and wonder, and question their assumptions and practices help learners develop their capacities to understand others. They train them to listen with open hearts, minds, eyes, and ears. Most importantly, framing learning environments, in which learners are motivated to explain and justify their ideas, can help them function in their discomfort zone. More than ever, learners need to develop skills for being leaders of their own learning. Through speaking confidently and learning to disagree respectfully, they will eventually manage their impulsivity, assess their leadership dialogue skills, and map their progress as they develop these skills. Their leadership dialogue skills can impact their behavior and their choices in the future.
