MOTIVATING TEENAGE LEARNERS


Keeping learners engaged and focused is one of the
biggest challanges for teachers working with
teenagers. The intrinsically motivated teenage learner
is generally considered to be a rare species. Are we
helpless in our efforts to engage learners and therefore
achieve better learning outcomes?
The experts and authors of Upbeat (and an upcoming
course by the same authors) have agreed to share with
us practical tips and ideas, and materials you can use in
the classroom.
