# 1 MAINTAINATTENTION Studies show that most peoples attention lapses after 10 to 18 minutes of PASSIVE listening. By inserting a few Qwizdom activities every so often during a lesson can help maintain STUDENTS attention. You may know this as the Change Up effect. 4. # 2. PROMOTE ACTIVEENGAGEMENT

    • Posing well chosen questions to students during the session and expecting answers from each students can cause them to reflect on and assimilate content during training
    • I emphasise Well Chosen questions. This wont work by asking endless multiple choice questions.

5. # 3 CHECK UNDERSTANDING DURING TRAINING... Qwizdom allows me to determine whether you understand important points or distinctions used in lessons. You dont have to wait to papers are returned or exams are completed. Instead I can give feedback on a lesson and IN that lesson. 6. # 4 INVOLVEEVERYONEIN THE ROOM What usually happens when say hands up who knows the answer to this one? A show of blank faces, maybe one or two hands up. Posing Qwizdom questions gets everyone in the room involved. 7. # 5 PROMOTE COLLABORATION & DISCUSSION With group exercises that require students to discuss and come to a consensus. I could ask a Yes/No question or a True/False question and ask my students to discuss their answers and opinions. 8. #5 MEASURE & TRACK PROGRESS Qwizdom lets me measure and track progress of the entire class. Post-session all results are available to you in Excel, Flash and PDF. You can use Qwizdom to measure and track progress of each and every delegate over any time period. 9. # 7. CREATE SOME DRAMA Last and certainly not least, you can use Qwizdom to create a little drama in training, as studentswait to see the results and how theirclassmates responded. 10. THANK YOU.
