Zoltan Dornyei has been a student of motivation for many years. Recently he has shifted his perspective to include the concept of engagement. When we think of motivation, we generally focus on the individual. The concept of engagement widens the lens to look at the environment in which learning takes place. Engagement also depends on the level of interest an individual has in the topic at hand. Dornyei suggests that students today are bombarded by myriad distractions that prevent them from becoming engaged in their learning. He cites a Gallup poll of 900,000 K-12 students that shows only 50% of them are engaged; with that number dropping to 34% by the 11th grade.
Dornyei speaks about engagement when children are physically in the school and in the classroom. Last year and this year have been very different (to say the least). We experienced a sudden shift from in-person instruction to online or virtutal classes. Then many of us found ourselves teaching with some students in the classroom and others with us virtually, with various COVID protocols enforced. Students (and teachers) continue to deal with a myriad of issues related to the virus: health, economic, and psychological.
