Salt Lake City (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today released a video segment showing how to increase student engagement through new active learning strategies. The video, which comes as part of School Improvement Network’s weekly publication, “Strategy of the Week,” shows strategies to increase student engagement with exercises like “note making.”
“Strategies to increase student engagement and learning like these can be used by all educators as they work towards becoming as effective as possible and preparing 100 percent of students for college and career,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “In classrooms of students with different needs and levels of comprehension, active learning strategies can increase student engagement and achievement by helping students become more involved in the learning process and connect what they’re learning to other lessons and subjects.”
In the new video segment, viewers will learn about strategies to increase student engagement such as having students summarize their learning by:
- Sharing back and forth with a partner or the teacher
- Drawing a picture
- Writing it down
- Silent think time
