Inspiring Awe and Wonder – Increasing student engagement in classrooms

Student engagement is one of the hot issues in education and seems to be an enduring challenge. A recent Gallup poll in the US found the longer children are in school the less they want to be there. During this session participants will consider what it means to be intellectually engaged and will apply a new conception for engagement that puts transformative learning at the top. They will also consider a variety of practical strategies for framing assessments and developing lessons that can help to ensure increased engaged among all learners.
