There is countless research that says an engaging learning environment supports student achievement and success. As a former classroom teacher, my favorite memories are of seeing my students totally into a project, hearing them talk with their classmates about what they were doing, and celebrating their successes when they understood a concept or completed a project they worked so hard on. A classroom should be a place for conversation and collaboration, combined with critical thinking and creativity.
Now, student engagement can be supported with several amazing digital tools that ramp up interaction and collaboration. Boxlight-EOS has designed a professional development seminar that helps teachers enhance their skills using digital tools, as well as learn best practices for incorporating more peer-to-peer accountability and how gamification and student choice can foster a truly engaged learning environment.
