Helping students get started: making it easy with behavioural psychology

Mark’s class seem unwilling to begin the lesson’s first task.  He wants them to begin learning independently, without nagging or reminders…

We can use behavioural psychology to nudge students in the right direction by making desired actions EAST: Easy, Attractive, Social and Timely.  I posed Mark’s classroom challenge in a previous post; this post shares ways Mark can make getting started easier.  This post relies on the suggestions of Paul James, Niki Kaiser, Alice Lane, Steve Lawley, Ollie Lovell, Amanda Melton, Adam Robbins, Ellie Russell, Julian Selman and Dom Shibli: thank you.
