Activity Purpose/ Summary:
The purpose of discussing the OKR ( Objectives. Key results ) framework with high school students was to give them practical tools for achieving academic success. By teaching them how to set clear goals and track their progress, we aim to empower them to take control of their learning journey. This approach helps students improve their grades, stay motivated, and develop habits for lifelong learning. Ultimately, the goal is to set them up for success in school and beyond, building confidence and resilience along the way.
