3 Practices for Better Student Engagement!

Teacher Insights

The process of teaching has undergone radical changes during years. The teachers are no longer the sole sources of information with a duty to impart knowledge to our students. Students are consuming media and information every day — from the time they wake up until the time they fall asleep. They ask Google a question to be met with an instant response.

To get the complete attention of the students in a classroom is a challenge any teacher would need to face every day. Teacher oriented class rooms are no more. Student or the learner is the center now. The teacher is a provider or a guide who mentors the students' learning. 

Consider yourself a learner:

When you consider yourself the lead learner in your classroom, you’re committing to learning alongside, and also from your students. Cultivating an environment where everyone is a learner, doer, and teacher, creates a safe space where students feel encouraged to take risks, test out their theories, and drive their own learning.


Use technology:

It’s very easy to provide students with a tablet or laptop and assume engagement — when it’s actually the device that’s engaging, not the material being explored through the device. The teacher should be clever enough to make the students use the gadgets wisely. 

Involve students in the assessment process:

Students should be part of the assessment process. Perhaps this means asking them how a certain project should be assessed. It could mean asking students to share the concept in a format of their choice. When students are asked to take ownership of their learning, they’re learning how to hold themselves accountable to meet their own goals.
