What Binge Watching Tells us About Classroom Engagement

What Binge Watching Tells us About Classroom Engagement

A recent survey by Netflix showed that more than 60% of people binge-watch between 2 and 6 episodes of a show in one sitting – that is an hour to six hours of content! When I attend education conferences and sit in on professional development sessions, I tend to cringe when experts tell teachers and administrators that students do not learn when they are seated all the time. They usually go on to say that if the lessons involved more movement and less “seat-time”, more students would be engaged.
