@SimmonsEugene when I was teaching 4th grade math I played classical music frequently for my Ss - I think it was helpful

@sandeeteach yes, absolutely! That is why & the Maker Movement is so important to advance in “traditional school!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sandeeteach

A5 My favorite question for parents to ask their kids about school is: “What did you MAKE today?”

via erased4838853

wyowayne68 a4) Strong relationships also limit boredom. When kid knows they are cared for and culture is fun, they handle a bit of boring.

wyowayne68 Not sure. This i do know. Happy students who love school lead to happy parents.

@jpk38 @Rj3kost @LachelleBrant @OgShane gr8 teachers can bring engagement, creativity & challenges to their classrooms TODAY!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jpk38

@jpk38 @Rj3kost @LachelleBrant @OgShane That’s why it’s so vital to remember that gr8 teachers make the difference!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jpk38

@jpk38 A5 Engaged students are more likely to talk to parents about what they are doing/learning at school. This is a big success

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jpk38

@ogdshane it’s not fair to paint all classrooms & Ts w that broad brush however. Lots of innovation & creative learning happening

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ogdshane

A4 It follows, then, if Ss report “school is boring” we need to ask questions about classroom culture & challenging activities

via erased4838853

A4 Students’ perceptions of “school” are shaped by the culture of classrooms & the challenges they find or don’t find there

via erased4838853

@ogdshane what if you see students creating visual notes in class? showwithmedia.com/visual-notetak… Still compliance or is that engagement?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ogdshane

A3 You know students are engaged when they don’t want to leave your class & want to show others what they’ve created/made/learned

via erased4838853

@mz_frizzle A3 some admins would answer “engagement is measured by discipline referrals - fewer means kids are more engaged!”

via erased4838853 in reply to mz_frizzle

A3 I’m not sure we measure engagement, rather we can measure/assess media products which are the result of engagement & learning

via erased4838853

@alandemaret I agree 100% Too often in education we celebrate compliance & submission to authority, rather than active engagement

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alandemaret

@tntechgal I think engagement is inherently an active rather than a passive process or condition

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tntechgal

@tntechgal I don’t think engagement is the same thing as being receptive. Receptive = ready to receive, can be passive.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tntechgal

A2 Engagement always involves learning because it is focused attention, voluntarily given. Not always teacher-directed of course

via erased4838853

@MsCrawford101 @KamRenae Often we equate “engagement” with being “entralled” - compliance is more closely related to the latter

mandi_cloud A1: Recess is the time where students get to choose what they do! Ss need to get up and move! They aren’t made to sit all day!

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:22 PM, Apr 12th, 2015 via Twitter Web Client)

A2 Recess provides opportunities for minds to wander, kids to self-organize, to play & BE in an unstructured natural environment

MrP_tchr Q2: What is the purpose of recess?

via Hootsuite (retweeted on 8:20 PM, Apr 12th, 2015 via Twitter Web Client)

teganridesabike A2 Recess = kids use skills learned in class in real world situations- cooperation, team work, self control, compromise, etc

MagicPantsJones A1 Students who own a classroom have a sense of value and responsibility that others don’t. They learn to trust their voice.

SykesGAStudies A1 students must feel as if they are valued individuals; without student buy-in they will lack engagement and meaning.
