Creating Curiosity in the Classroom – Nina Lauder
People have a natural desire to find out more than what they already know. This natural curiosity to learn is something that, as teachers, we can tap into in the classroom. Learning is critically influenced by learner motivation and our classes are much more productive if students are curious about a topic and engaged in it. Curiosity might have 'killed the cat', but a lack of curiosity in the classroom might kill our pupils' will to learn. Come along and find out how to build interest and spark curiosity in our lessons.
