Research looks at subtle signs of student engagement
When educators discuss student engagement, the focus tends to be on student behavior. However, a recent study by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Michigan finds that emotion and cognition are the more subtle -- but equally important -- signs of student engagement, writes education reporter Sarah Sparks. Researchers for the study, published in the journal Learning and Instruction, found that students were more engaged and motivated when the lessons were of personal interest and relevant.
