The Power of Student Engagement
When we talk to our educational partners about how SmartLab HQs are benefitting their schools, the word we hear over and over is “engagement.”
Engaged students are better learners. They show up to class energized and ready to learn. They have fewer disciplinary problems and are more active participants in their learning community.
Engagement is the fuel that powers a SmartLab HQ.
But what are the factors that lead to engaged learning?
In this Edutopia article, middle-school students provide us with key insights. These principles are applied every day in SmartLab Learning’s suite of programs, but they are certainly applicable to other classes as well.
