Why do I need to know THIS?!” are the exasperated words of a bored student. No more! Add spARCS in your lesson design to motivate students’ interests. The ARCS motivational design model that helps you connect instruction with students’ goals; gains their attention; adds relevance; builds student confidence; and increases satisfaction with learning.

Participants in this blended lesson design walkthrough will learn and experience the positive effects of adding motivational elements into any lesson that will ""spARC"" and sustain students’ interest using the ARCS Motivational Instructional Design model. The systematic methodology of ARCS helps teachers figure out how to gain learners’ ATTENTION, add RELEVANCE for the learner’s perspective of the lesson, build CONFIDENCE in the learner’s belief they can successfully accomplish the objectives, and increase learner’s SATISFACTION with the lesson outcomes. Sprinkle a little spARCS into your existing lessons to liven up the students' motivation to learn. The walkthrough includes the presentation of tactics used to identify the motivational characteristics of learners, instructional materials, and learning sequences. Stay for the After Party for discussion on how to apply spARCS to your lessons!
