With students working from home we face many challenges. The biggest challenge – motivation. How do we keep our young people engaged? How do we keep them on task and learning?
How do we solve this problem? Using our teacher superpower – encouragement.
We are all here to work together! This edition of Classroom Connections aims to inspire you in creating impactful and interactive ways of teaching. Not to mention giving teachers a hand with some free downloadable activities.
For a while now we have had a focus on being able to multitask and complete several activities at the same time. We have been taught how to use different tools, create programs and use multiple devices to complete as many tasks as we can. However, studies have shown that multitasking can have a negative impact upon productivity.
Therefore, should we be learning the ability to do just one thing at a time?
The online communities that have blossomed over the last few weeks are amazing. They provide us with new spaces in which to connect with educators in the same boat and share our struggles, ideas and triumphs.
Steps to the Future is based upon the QCAA Career Education Short Course Syllabus (2018), and it is designed specifically to support students in their journey towards work or further education and training after school. The workbook steps students through the process of finding work, setting goals for the future and identifying their strengths and weaknesses in order to build the ideal career pathway.
