Students just don’t pay attention anymore…
No matter how many times we tell them, they still can’t learn the language. They keep forgetting the structure!
The problem is, maybe we shouldn’t be telling them.
Students don’t learn by sitting there and listening to teachers anymore. The digital age has changed the way we consume, understand, and process information.
Maybe we should be involving them.
Education models are changing. Values of learners are changing. Everyone wants to be engaged, to be a part of the process, and above all, they want to experiment with it.
But above all, the student-centered classroom gives every student an equal opportunity to process information. Don’t believe it? See the research at Stanford. It’s also an important step in making sure that “learners benefit from the lessons” in the assessment requirements for CELTA.
Give your students equal opportunities and enable them to become more active in the learning process!
