Task interest is about feelings and thoughts. Task interest can be personal or situational and motivates students. Motivation is important in the different phases in the learning process of the learner. The learner pays attention to this and it also influences their choice of learning strategies.
The pre-school teachers in a Brussels school use a selection board. The pre-schoolers themselves decide in which corner they will perform a particular task. The teachers use the Digital Choice Board.
The example below is used in nursery education, but can be used at different levels of education.
The Digital Choice Board is the digital alternative to the traditional magnetic selection board. The pupils themselves enter their choices via an online programme that works on any computer. As a result, the teacher has extensive statistics that indicate who has played with whom, which activities are the most popular and what each individual child has chosen. This provides time, convenience and new insights.
