If you are a teacher studying this, then you will have probably know the glassy look. This when you are speaking with a room of learners and they all look like they are being attentive but you can tell by the look in their sight, that they are not. They are probably dreaming about their next vacation.
When this happens, it can be annoying. You will be trying your best to get the attention across and you want them to know what you are saying but you know if someone requested them what they did in school, they would have no concept. They probably wouldn’t even keep in mind what you were dressed in. When you ask a student why they zone out, they will probably blame you. You have taught them for a lengthy time, or the subject was tedious or the individual preferred, “Well, I will never need this life, so why listen?”
What can you do?
The response to this is practical learning. This might be a surprise if you are used to stand there with a projector and then discussing for the duration of the class. You need to interact with them. You do this by actually including them in the class. You could still have the same structure to the class, with the projector, but ask them concerns and choose on them to respond to concerns. This will likely provide them with a fear and they will pay interest more. Well, for that class anyway. Next 7 days, they will probably be returning to not listening and think they are okay because you would never choose on the same individual twice.
