As you know, today's students are digitally focused and ,by implication, multi-tasked. Their attention span is short and scattered. One of the biggest challenges facing any teacher today is holding students attention. There are actually several ways we can use to get students focused and on task, one of them is the use of the same technology they use everyday, but of course this use should be well prepared for in advance and supported with clear well planned objectives for each activity involving this technology. The second thing is to provide the teachable input in such a way to stimulate students visual motors, infographics, mindmaps, slides, posters, and printables , to mention but few, are good techniques to use in this regard. Make sure you embellish you classroom walls with posters that connect to students learning, speak to their mind, and arouse their curiosity. These visual realia are of great help to their learning and luckily enough there are several gifted educators committed to creating and generously sharing such kind of materials for free.
Shannon is one of these educators.I have been going through some of the work she has done in this context and I was really amazed at her dexterity and high level of creativity. I have reviewed all the printabes she has made and selected the ones below . Although all of her work rocks, but the ones I selected for you are the top of her production ( in my personal view).
