Impacts on Indigenous Students

Can't see the video? Watch it here:

Have you ever thought about the difference in life our students face? There are many impacts on learning that are easy to overlook because we focus on our own experience.

This video by Menzies has been playing on TV over the last few months and is a refreshing take on the statistics we normally read in reports.

It was Erik Jensen who identified these three primary reasons for lack of student motivation:
  1. Negative experiences
  2. Environmental factors
  3. Student's relationship with the future
When you get a minute, check out the video and then think about what challenges your students may be facing!
