STUDENTS IN ACTIVE LEARNING
Students will develop an administering approach with disciplines in active learning. Students will not be interested in just merely memorizing or remembering the lesson proper. Nowadays, the better approach is to let students actively participate in the discussion by letting them practice synthesizing, analyzing and assessing what they have learned. Let them perform in the class by asking the question, providing their opinions and discussing matters that are significant to the subject.
A student who involves themselves in the classroom activities would likely enhance their knowledge and skills. Consequently, they will have a wider perception of the lessons and materials presented to them. As students need to learn further, they do their task handily without wasting time at home. They are much prepared and plans ahead of time.
To ask students to synthesize, analyze or apply material, in lecture and in homework’s may include debate, case-based problem solving exercises, role plays, questioning/ answering exercises and group discussion (small or peer) such as work with case studies in giving a lesson and have students accomplish by their own or in a peer group, or make the major projects/exam be a case studies and let them present challenging points of view in lecture and designate students to contend one or make a brief written test or classroom argument. These will help students improve analytical skills, acquire information on how to apply academic theories to actual problems and that helps establish critical thinking or logical reasoning skills. It helps students perceive and retain material in the process of serving the wide-ranging objectives in developing their perception of their classmates and enhancing their communication skills as learning resources.
Students who actively engage in the learning environment take more responsibility for their actions likewise when they have freedom to make decisions about what they learn and how they apply that skills. They see it more beneficial and more relevant to their goals. As a result, it is both beneficial for both the teacher and student the active learning approach.
