Teachers get creative to keep students engaged during online learning

Teachers get creative to keep students engaged during online learning

COLORADO SPRINGS — During this time of online learning, local school districts are raising concerns over student engagement. Some say students are disappearing during class time, not turning in assignments, and have a lack of participation.

“We’re seeing some students not log into their class, maybe not turning in their assignment, forgetting their assignment or they weren’t aware of it,” said Dr. Wendy Birhanzel, superintendent of Harrison School District 2.

Birhanzel says it’s been a struggle to keep their online learners engaged in the classroom. She says it’s important for students to stay engaged to prevent learning gaps and foster growth.

“As research will tell us, their academic achievement will increase, their self-esteem will increase, the likelihood of going to college and getting a job after high school will increase,” said Birhanzel.

Parents should monitor their children online to make sure they’re paying attention and participating in class.

“Children are pretty savvy and sometimes parents think they’re online but they’re playing a game or doing something other than their assignment,” said Birhanzel.

Angelica Marquez with Falcon School District 49 says they’ve also been having problems with student engagement.

“Kids are being left by themselves at home or left in front of the computer by themselves while mom or dad is trying to multitask,” said Marquez.

She recommends parents set expectations for themselves and children.

“Parents go off of expectations for teachers, but I think since they’re being held responsible for what’s going on at home, there needs to be an expectation coming from their point of view as well,” said Marquez.

Both school districts are coming up with creative ways to keep their students engaged.

“We have teachers checking in on them, we are starting some peer groups where they can meet together and socialize,” said Marquez.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with DPS school and district administrators and educators, the DPS Education Foundation, and their funders for many years,” explains Jeanne Timmons, Creative Learning Systems’ Regional Sales Manager. “We are honored that DPS has chosen to continue our work together toward a fully articulated ECE–12 STEM program for their students.” To date, the Colorado-based company has helped implement more than two dozen STEM SmartLab Learning environments in 22 schools across the district.

SmartLabs are fully articulated, K–12 STEM solutions that empower students to explore robotics, software engineering, mechanics and structures, circuitry, scientific data and analysis, alternative energy, computer graphics, and digital media arts. The comprehensive SmartLab solutions are carefully designed and provisioned for each grade level. Every program element—technology, classroom design, construction kits, curriculum, scope and sequence, professional development, and ongoing support—work together to meet students where they are and take them as far as they are able. As Susana Cordova, DPS Superintendent, explained speaking at a ribbon cutting for the Montbello campus in 2019, “SmartLabs level the playing field for all students.”

Creative Learning Systems’ more than 30 years of experience developing innovative turnkey learning solutions contributed to their selection. But their new solution for Chromebook users became a defining point.
