‘Engagement in Australian Schools’

  • Engagement “connection with learning”
  • “They are often more likely to identify uncooperative and low-‐‐level disruptive students as those who are not engaged with learning.33 But this fails to recognise the large group of students who are ‘quietly’ disengaged. “ (p.6)
  • “Some studies have shown that engagement is increased through flexible, individualised teaching in a supportive learning environment. Project-‐‐based learning, for example, allows students to own their own task. Strong student-‐‐teacher relationships create a classroom where students feel safe and engaged. Student monitoring is a key step for teachers to assess whether they are having an impact on students” (p.7)
