Whether you’re teaching a group of elementary school students or college students, one of the greatest difficulties you will face is keeping their attention for an extended period of time. Especially now that technology is so prominent in students’ lives (and even in the classroom), it’s likely that your students are more tuned into their electronic devices than they are to what’s being presented to them. However, having a few effective teaching techniques under your belt before you even enter the classroom can reduce your chances of having to struggle with students who are not paying attention.
With help from Faculty Focus, we’ve compiled a few great teaching tips that can help you keep your students engaged, see below:
In addition to using these strategies and techniques, it’s important to realize that your classroom’s furniture and setup also play a role in keeping students focused. For example, if desks are set up in a way where some students will have to turn around to see the board, it’s likely that they’ll be more inclined to lose focus and remain facing forward at their desk. That’s why at Nickerson Corporation, we offer furniture that is reliable, comfortable and flexible for your school’s classroom!
