Students’ brains are hijacked emotionally versus academically right now. Hopes for normal springtime school experiences have been replaced with anxiety, frustration, and despair, especially as families struggle economically and are challenged by illness. School work may or may not be students’ top priority, and understandably so. What can we do, then, to help them invest in their own learning for the remainder of this year and perhaps longer, especially when they feel isolated and grades may or may not matter? No matter what type of distance learning experience you’re providing for your students. Watch this provocative and practical Webinar with LeAnn Nickelsen and Rick Wormeli as they bust motivation myths and provide specific insights on how to plan online learning experiences to maximize students’ motivation during this challenging time.
