It’s not about engagement
Posted January 14, 2015on:
This visual practically speaks for itself. Where it does not might be the belief system of teachers or educators.
As good as their intentions might be, teachers who want to engage their learners might be focusing on teacher needs. I need you to pay attention, I wish you would be interested in this boring topic, I want you to learn this.
Compare this to educators who take a different stance of creating and nurturing the need to learn amongst their students. The focus is questions that drive learning. Why is this important? How does this help me today and tomorrow? What do I have to do to learn this?
