To engage all learners, we can use symbols, color, and font to increase the automaticity of our learners. Is it possible for students to learn because they want to learn?
I like to think of it as marketing for kids. Think about commercials, television shows, and music targeted to kids and tweens. It's colorful, catchy, simple, silly, engaging, and fun. We have to find ways to help all students want to learn.
What steps can we take to ensure students enjoy learning?
The answer? Good design.
Similarly, good design can make your classroom more effective and more efficient. Make a brand, make a logo, create a class symbol. Need a place to start? Let's make a personalized bookmark.
