Kids Share Their Thoughts on Student Engagement - Edutopia

Kids Share Their Thoughts on Student Engagement - Edutopia | 21st century education | Scoop.it

"A while back, I was asked, "What engages students?" Sure, I could respond, sharing anecdotes about what I believed to be engaging, but I thought it would be so much better to lob that question to my own eighth graders. The responses I received from all 220 of them seemed to fall under 10 categories, representing reoccurring themes that appeared again and again. So, from the mouths of babes, here are my students' answers to the question: "What engages students?""

Today, computer involment in classroom is immence. We have e-learning lesson plans, enhahced with WEB.2 tools for immediate reaction. I know I have created a rich learning event when all my students are engaged in arguing about the best approach to the assignment. When we use questions and problems that allow for multiple strategies to reach a successful outcome, then we can speak that we gave students the opportunity to make choices and then compare their approaches. This strategy challenges them to operate at a higher level of thinking than when they can share only the "correct" answer. And this is only possible in class.
