5 Proven Ways to Engage Students In Your Classroom - Edudemic

5 Proven Ways to Engage Students In Your Classroom - Edudemic | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
No matter what subject they teach or what age group their students fall into, all teachers face the same basic challenge: They have to find a way to actively engage students in the learning process. Today’s learners tend to respond best to interactive teaching methods, so many instructors have integrated technology into their lesson plans. …

The five proven ways to engage students are:

* Use Responsive Technology - There are many ways to have students respond to questions throughout a class period. One that is free that you may want to check out is Socrative.

* Define Objectives - Make sure there are clearly define goals that are written in student-friendly language. And be prepared to make quick changes if the responsive technology shows the need.

* Add Context - The post explains this as having a pre-assessment question to help gauge the existing topic knowledge, followed by a question part way through the period to help see the students understanding. At the end of the period a final question (post assessment) would help see if the students are understanding the concept taught.

* Keep it Simple - Make sure that your presentation material is simple. Too much information on a slide may be too much for the students to understand. Remember that visuals are critical and classroom discussion will also help students learn new material.

* Make it Interactive - With technology it is easier to keep students engaged, but make sure to change things up throughout the lesson. There are many great resources online that help with this, and many have been explored in this Scoop.it.

An excellent article: Engage student using these methods. 

1. Use Responsive Technology - not just tech for tech's sake, such as writing answers. Use tech that demands a response. 

2. Define Objectives - Tell students what they need to be able to do, know, learn, show. And tell them early on, so they get time to practise it before you assess. 

3. Add Context - Make it connect with what they know already. Look for prior learning (the old KWL chart is great for this!) 

4. Keep it Simple - Your presentation and the way the content is delivered should be simple to access.

5. Make it Interactive - With technology it is easier to keep students engaged, but make sure to change things up throughout the lesson and the term!

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

"When you’re standing in front of a classroom of students who’re not quite sure they even want to be in your class, much less pay attention to what’s being said, things like neuroscience, research studies, and teaching the way the brain learns are an abstraction.

Yet, brain-targeted teaching can engage and excite students because it taps into factors that stimulate the brain, grab the attention, and set the stage for learning."

Great comments in here and how it links to neurobiology.

strong>Referencing Beth Dichter's insight:What if we were able to design our curriculum to support the way the brain learns? Would our students be more engaged in class? Learn about this new model, Teach the Way the Brain Learns, in this post. There is a short discussion about some of the concepts as well as six brain targets, each of which includes a brief neuroscience explanation as well as a "translation" so that you will understand how to implement each target in your classroom. What are some of the targets? Brain Target 1: Establish the emotional climate for learning What does this mean? "Stress impedes learning." Make connections with students and then begin the lesson. Brain Target 2: Creating the Physical Learning Environment What does this mean? The physical space impacts our students. Changing the space may help them learn. What changes could you make in your classroom? Four additional brain targets are provided. You may also want to check out the website Brain Targeted Teaching (http://www.braintargetedteaching.org/) where you will find additional information as well as sample units that utilize this method (and a template to create your own lessons).

Another great post by Annie Murphy Paul that provides information on why we should have students make predictions to help them become more involved in the learning process. The image above has some key points but more information is available in the post.
