Episode Summary: While the conversation about student engagement is always the rage in educational circles, it’s important to be able to specifically answer the question, “what IS student engagement?”
Teachers, administrators, and even parents can talk about this concept all day long, but if they don’t have a true answer to that question, then there is no point in pursuing techniques or strategies to reach them.
Student engagement is how much effort, excitement, attention, and interest a student shows in content material. By asking what is student engagement, a person is trying to define what will get a student to participate willingly, actively, and excitedly in the classroom.
It seems like with our Generation Z students, this is easier said than done.
