Keeping students motivated

When delivering eLearning, I always start each lesson with a Daily Dose of Motivation statement. This is my way of stoking the fire in my students’ bellies and giving them something both inspiring and encouraging to think about.

One example of my Daily Dose of Motivation was the theme, ‘Staying Connected’. With all of us having to practise social distancing, I felt it significant to remind my students of the need to maintain relationships: checking in with family, friends and neighbours (safely).

For many young people, I knew this could be a time of loneliness and isolation, as they adapt to life devoid of the buzz and community of school, hence the reason for sharing a few tips on keeping connected to those they care about.

Social distancing need not mean loneliness.

How are you staying connected at this time?
