6 Keys to Unlock Student Motivation

Workshop by Donna Sawyer

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: If ever there has been a silver bullet for breathing life into your delivery of your curriculum, it can be found in these SIX CRITICAL CONDITIONS. Why? These conditions zero in on some of the biggest problems teachers and students face every day: lack of motivation, apathy, and a student's inability to persist with complex tasks. What are the six conditions and how can we apply them to increase achievement in the classroom? Join us to explore the six elements and to access an online gold mine of technology-rich strategies that can quickly improve a teacher's capacity to reach unmotivated and disengaged students. Spend a HALF-DAY (demo & discussion) or a WHOLE DAY (demo, discussion, & hands-on technology) mastering six powerhouse strategies and walk away with a wealth of free online resources to make it happen in your classroom.
