Understanding Student Engagement
So much more than just fun & games. (Really!)
The body of literature around student engagement is vast and continues to grow. Educators have never been better informed of the complexities and interactions between pedagogy, technology, neuroscience and engagement. And yet, across the western world in particular, studies suggest that student engagement levels continue to drop. Not only are more students seemingly disengaged, but they seem to be so an increasingly earlier stage of their academic career. This Masterclass will explore the meaning of authentic engagement and its relationship with Mindset. Teachers and schools can encourage engagement in their community without resorting to superficial fun & games in the hope that kids will “love it” - and this Masterclass will help you to do that.
