Student Engagement: How do we engage 21 st Century learners? Welcome Educators ISTE Conference 2011
What is a 21 st Century learner? A Vision of K12 students today video
How do we engage the learners? We need to use the technology that students use everyday to connect the content they are learning at school with their lives. We need to provide opportunities for students to interact with the content in a variety of ways. We need to let the students take the lead and be there to guide them.
According to our keynote speaker, Debbie Silver, “All students must be given a reasonable chance to learn and succeed,…When they are given this opportunity, they will be engaged, and reach beyond where even they thought possible. Raising the bar and steering kids toward self-efficacy is what teachers need to be doing in the classroom.”
Teacher Responsibilities: Provide interactive environment Learn to use the new technologies Engage the students Motivate the students Educate the students
