Education Now | Curiosity and Motivation Amid the Pandemic


REGISTER HERE! As we reach the traditional break in the year — and look ahead to a spring of continued disruption — it’s time to ask: How can we keep students (and their adult caregivers and educators) motivated amid a pandemic? Join us for this action-oriented webinar to take you into winter break and fortify you with some new ideas about how to refresh your approach and tap the intrinsic motivation of your students. How does curiosity work, and how can we spark it? How can we help young people develop and retain a love of learning and a connection to school — during these challenging times of distance and of unequal access to resources and support. • Elizabeth Bonawitz, David J.
