Student engagement leads to meaningful learning

The right tools help build engaging lessons.
How do you know they’re working?

Learning that connects, inspires, and accelerates happens when students are engaged. So we asked educators, “how do you know when a student is engaged in learning?” More than 700 responded, ranking their top signs of student engagement. Check out the top 3 signs and the many other ways teachers identified meaningful learning moments in their classrooms in our colorful infographic.

A LESSON TAUGHT WITH A SKILL-AND-DRILL PRODUCT

Risk demotivating students with repetitive skills practice.

We’re still uncovering the impacts of pandemic learning, but broad-based remediation is not the solution. Repetitive skills practice with lessons devoid of context for students is only going to disengage and demotivate them further. 53% of educators*​ say these tools are neutral or ineffective.

Now is the time​ to
reimagine learning

Learning is accelerated when students feel connected to the content.

“We need to look ahead, to a time when every piece of instructional content will be designed for inclusivity, accessibility, backed by the learning science of motivation and engagement, and available in every modality to the next generation of citizens,” says Newsela Chief Academic Officer Dan Cogan-Drew.

My students have "found" learning this year through the exposure to online tools and platforms. Although we haven't been able to "cover" as much this year, learning has been about mastery and quality more so than quantity. #LearningFound

Tammy mcbean@themcbeans

My students found learning from educators who care enough to push through and teach students who have never used technology before like this. Our students also found learning from each other by teaching each other tips & tricks & working together virtually! #LearningFound

Amie Reed @pensivechatter

Students have found learning everywhere this year! They've had to work on problem-solving and their ability to work independently. Many of them are more confident in their abilities. ​ #LearningFound

The best lessons start with the best content.

It’s time to return to the schools we love, to lessons that feed curiosity and spark connection. It’s time to find learning everyone can celebrate.
