Turn down the volumecontrol on boredom in schools and turn up engagement and optimal learning. A lot of studetns are bored in schools. In Denmark 26 % of the students are bored so often and to such an extent, it threatens their learning, health and well-being. International reseach shows even higher percentages. Bordedom seems to be part of the everyday life in schools accepted of students, teachers and parents as "it is just the way it is". But boredom not only affects the students well-being in a few minutes a day, it alos affects the way they learn, the quality of their learning and their motivation for further education. And it does not have to be this way. In traditional education we are missing the opportunities to create learning the students find engaging, meaningful and applicable in other areas of life. In this workshop the presenters will demonstrate how to battle boredom - and they invite you to join. Based on
research and best practise of learning, engagement and boredom the participants will be introduced to a wide range of ways and tools to adress boredomin schhols and education. The workshop will include hands-on exercises targeting students, teachers and school envirionment
