One of the biggest challenges for a year 11 and 12 student is getting and staying motivated to put in the hard yards to produce their best possible results.
At HSC CoWorks, motivating students to work even when they don’t want to is embedded in everything we do. From our organisational core value of ‘Unite in Vision’ to our Student Key Behaviour of ‘Engage your Vision’ we are committed to constantly reminding students of all the exciting benefits and rewards associated with achieving a fantastic HSC result.
To further support our students ‘engage their vision’ we are excited to introduce two new tools to keep help students minimise distraction and procrastination as well as staying energised to work on the tasks that will produce the results.
Our Virtual Vision Board exercise into the student portal poses a series of questions to students every 30 days as a simple but powerful exercise in contextualising the effort of today with the rewards awaiting them at the end of the HSC process. Students’ selections are reset every 30 days and students can re-build their virtual vision board which should take no more than 2 minutes to complete.
Watch the below video to see how it works.
In addition to our new virtual vision board our Vision Board Template provides a simple template for a physical vision board in students study area as a constant reminder of why they are going to work on the tasks they don’t want to work on. No one is studying for fun but without the physical vision board it’s easy to forget your ‘why’ and therefore everything other than study will start looking more attractive (think texting, social media, Netflix, YouTube and the endless other distractions available to students).
