Strategies for Encouraging, Engaging, and Educating Students (SEEES-2)

Using different Strategies in a more innovative way augments a number of platforms where students can access English as a foreign language and shape their learning in microcosmic and macrocosmic settings. Encouraging students to engage enthusiastically, learn cooperatively, and work effectively. Engaging students in the learning process increases their attention and focus, motivates them to practice higher-level-critical thinking skills, and promotes meaningful leaning experiences. Educating students to become lifelong learners is a no-easy task for teachers to make them face the fast and unexpected changes and challenges in their everyday lives and to serve their communities better in the future.
