Workshop Description:

Motivating students is one of the major challenges teachers face on a daily basis.

After several months of remote learning combined with the competing demands of screen time and technology, our students are struggling to stay connected to their learning and our teachers feel frustrated with their lack of focus and engagement.

A Gallup survey shows that less than half of our students feel engaged in school.

We can help students feel the drive and motivation to engage, learn, work effectively, and achieve their potential at school, but we have to do things a bit differently. Learning simple techniques to increase their interest and enjoyment of school makes a big difference.

Teachers play a critical role in the motivation and engagement of their students.

Student engagement and motivation: Impact on learning and behavior

Everyone feels frustrated right now, but understanding how to re-engage students requires first understanding the definition of student engagement, the benefits, and the different types of engagement.

Provides teachers with practical help using digital tools.

We will teach you a myriad of available digital tools to transform time-tested models of teaching in order to make 21st century learning more efficient, effective, and engaging.

Design effective instruction that addresses students' needs.

You will learn how to successfully address the individual and shared learning needs of the diverse population of students in today’s dynamic, fast-paced, technology-driven, global society.

Learn easy strategies to increase engagement.

Implement strategies such as collaboration, participation techniques, high-level questioning, and inquiry-based instruction in your classes and watch students come alive.

In this workshop you and your staff will learn:

Structured methods for how to engage and motivate

We'll cover the methods used to implement student-centered instruction to promote student ownership of learning.

Strategies and techniques

We'll show you how to use simple strategies and techniques you can employ to make student engagement sustainable and simple.

How to implement and maximize the provided Engagement resources

We'll guide you through our Engagement resources and give you practical ways to implement the provided lessons, activities, and tools in your instruction.
