Susan Gingras Fitzell's curator insight, December 16, 2013 12:42 AM

While it’s easy to look at under performing students and label them as lazy, in reality, research indicates that most students lack motivation because of three fundamental factors:
1. Students don’t believe they can succeed even if they try.
2. Students don’t feel they have any control over their life choices.
3. Students have a need to avoid failure.

When laptops first arrived in my classroom, I worried about classroom management. How could I create an environment where students used their computers as tools rather than toys?

I was worried for nothing. The following are suggestions for keeping students engaged in a project and accountable for their time with computers:

"Wonder leads to prediction."

" Math has estimating. Science has hypothesizing. English uses foreshadowing. Another word for predicting is simply guessing, and we all like to guess."

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, January 15, 2014 7:09 AM

Love it! This is a well - thought out strategy for the classroom.

Here is another way to use prediction in both class and homework lessons. Try telling your students:

Tonight, you don't have to do any work for your homework. In fact, you are not even allowed to find the answers to the algebra questions on your homework sheet. Do no work -- just guess. (Prediction questions.) Tomorrow we'll discuss the process of estimation as a great math tool. It will make algebra much more fun for you.

When I tried these guessing instructions in homework assignments, I found it very funny how often students cheated by actually doing the work so that their "predictions" would be accurate. What a concept -- learning by cheating!

Wonder and prediction can be used independently, of course. But together they provide a powerful motivation structure that can reach even the most difficult students.

I wonder how many of you have great examples of lessons based on these magical qualities. I predict that I'll soon find out.

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, November 27, 2013 5:57 PM

This is an interesting way to look at and evaluate your child's engaement with school as well as your parenting. Are you encouraging "ritual compliance" or real engagement? And, for those of with kids with special needs, the behavior labels in the green boxes might be more helpful in terms of both describing what we see as well as considering in motivating our childen.
