Student Engagement in the 21st Century Classroom
Student engagement on one of the most important aspects of 21st-century learning environments. When students are more engaged, curiosity, passion, and levels of motivation can increase exponentially. For students to be truly engaged, the functionality of the classroom is key. All students need to be able to hear not only what the teacher is saying, but also what students are contributing. When having class discussions students often miss key details of not only what the teacher is saying but class discussions as well. In my classroom we build on student questions and when the classroom is large its hard for students to hear what classmates are saying and to contribute to class discussions. For this reason, I will add auditory enhancements to my classroom to enhance auditory learning and student success.
