This was an interesting article to read. I think it was brilliant of the teacher to ask the students to speak about what does and does not engage them. The students are the ones learning the content and doing the class work so it would be helpful if teachers asked how they can make learning more engaging for them. The perspective of the student is often overlooked and it is a crucial resource to create lessons around. The students mentioned working in groups and using technology. We live in a society where technology is embedded into everyone's lives especially students. Embedding technology into the classroom setting will help engage the students and they will be taught when it is and is not appropriate to use technology particular when it is not for educational purposes. I have used technology in the classroom when I can even though my students do not have access to Chromebooks. I have scheduled a couple trips to the computer lab where the students worked on projects. I have reviewed for a test on WWI using Kahoot on the Career Center computers. The students enjoyed the Kahoot review game so much they asked if we could use Kahoot for every test review. I was happy to hear this request and I knew the students were engaged and having fun while learning.
