BBC’s “Motivating the Unmotivated” with Ken Wilson

This seminar, Motivating the Unmotivated,  presented by Ken Wilson, focuses on how to motivate even the most unmotivated and “tired” students in our classrooms.  The truth is Wilson does a fabulous job in this seminar of motivating and re-energizing us, the teachers.  His “ten ways to get our students to do something” could as easily be called ten ways to “re-ignite our teacher-pilot” and make the classroom more energetic and stimulating for our students and for ourselves.   Wilson’s  humor, experience, and ideas for creating a lively, safe, and effective learning environment for students of all ages and abilities should be a part of our professional development regardless of what point in our career we are at, new or “seasoned.”  Setting aside less than an hour or so to watch this seminar will be time well spent, I promise.
