How to Foster Students’ Attention and Creativity in Classroom
Today, it is very easy to become a teacher because there are so many resources available online like books, training tutorials, free courses, etc. Anyone can be a good teacher but the toughest challenge for any course instructor is to capture each student’s attention and to convey ideas in such a way that it creates a long-lasting impact. Students often find their classroom lecture either too boring or too much information. They do not find enough attention-grabbing material in a lecture and fail to comprehend what the teacher wants to put into words. Perhaps teaching is not the only responsibility; connecting with your students is also mandatory.
How can teachers develop creativity in the classroom? Here are some key points that can help to bolster student attention and creativity in classroom space:
It is very important to personalize what you teach. The onus of education rests on the student rather than the course instructor. It enables the learner itself to identify goals and pace of study and to design a curriculum according to their needs.

Course work is developed in a way that it keeps the student stuck in a zone that doesn’t allow them to think outside the box. Teachers can develop the course work in a way that can be used to create project-based learning which fosters creativity and grabs attention. Students will, most likely, love what they study.
