How Do You Harness the Power of the Defult to Increase Student Outcomes?


I read a great article on Behavioral Economics and they discussed the power of the defualt. At its core, the power of a default is connected to how we tend to remain in the 'status quo' becuase it is familiar and known. However, the how powerful is the question: What will your future look like if you change absolutely nothing about your personal life and educational practice?

How can we use this idea to guide students and increase their retention? How does this question differ from asking students about their goals? 

Consider sharing your reaction to that question!
