The underlying principles of Student Gauge
Student Gauge interprets the fundamental underlying principles of Maslow's basic Hierarchy of Needs to help you identify and highlight areas that you can focus on in order to proactively monitor and ultimately improve the engagement levels of your learners, which in turn will improve their overall level of performance.
Learners who are encouraged and able to reach their full potential become 'actively engaged learners'.
Actively engaged learners are more motivated, more effective, more productive and most importantly more actively willing to learn.
Psychologist Abraham Maslow first introduced this concept in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation". The theory suggests that people are motivated to fulfil basic needs before moving on to other needs. This theory is still as valid today in understanding many aspects of human motivation and personal development.
On the back of extensive research, Student Gauge takes the concept of building blocks and applies it to the challenge that is engagement - providing you with a route map to greater levels of student engagement.
