Student Engagement

When we talk to our educational partners about how SmartLabs 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 discipline problems and are more active participants in their learning community.  Engagement is the fuel that powers a SmartLab.

But what are the factors that lead to engaged learning?

In this article, from the edutopia website, middle-school students provide us with key insights.  These principles are applied every day in the SmartLab, but they are certainly applicable to other classes as well.
