Student Engagement: Any Platform, Any Age, Any Ability (Day 1 of 2)
June 9, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Students who engage with content achieve academic goals and contribute to a positive classroom culture. How can educators best use available tools to engage ALL students? Workshop participants will explore tools to create and add audio, video, animation, screencast and image elements to lessons, explore gamification to boost engagement and adapt existing templates to showcase evidence of learning. Teachers will apply their learning to adapt existing lessons to boost student engagement and support the instructional model in place in their school.
One recent Gallup study including 128 schools and more than 110,000 students found that student engagement and hope were significantly positively related to student academic achievement progress (growth) in math, reading, and all subjects combined, along with postsecondary readiness in math and writing.
