One of the most important questions educators can ask. Engagement is the “Skeleton key” that can unlock academic success Classroom engagement has stumped educators for years and led to pervasive myths about what engagement looks like. Superhero teacher myth - We don’t have to have these captivating personalities. However, passion and excitement for a topic/learning can be conveyed. Remote Learning - A national anxiety about student engagement. “Students are not… logging in, completing assignments, sharing online, turning on cameras, etc.” How can we use this moment of disruption and chaos to try and apply some innovative thinking to recreate schools/classrooms to ignite a passion of learning and truly engage students in relevant learning? TPACK & SAMR - Frameworks for Technology Integration TPACK Model - (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) tpack.org SAMR Model - (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition) - edutopia.org/article/powerful-model-understanding-good-tech-integration Active learning - Students learn best when they get to interact at all times in the lesson.
