Steps to engage students in active learning

Schools are now modifying their conventional teaching methods by inculcating active learning in students for better academic performance. But what is active learning? Active learning is a learning activity in which the student interacts in the learning process instead of passively taking in the information.

It is also defined as an approach to learning that involves actively engaging students with the course material through discussions, problem-solving, and other learning methods. Students perform better when allowed to engage with the information they have learned actively.

Active learning also nurtures brain function, giving it an ample opportunity for the students to connect new information, correct previous misconceptions, and reconsider existing thoughts or opinions. Hence, students must keep engaged in active learning.

But, how to engage students in active learning?

Vignan, one of the best schools in Nizampet Hyderabad, here listed a few strategic approaches to engage students in active learning.

1. Turn Lessons into a Game

Turning a subject or topic into an interesting and fun game helps keep the students engaged in active learning. For instance, teachers can gamify a math class by introducing objects like balls, toys, etc to explain a concept of addition or subtraction. In addition, games help students remain concentrated for an extended amount of time than traditional formats like worksheets.

2. Hands-on Learning

The best schools in India create a hands-on learning environment in laboratories by making students perform the experiments independently. A brief explanation about the experiment and guidance on the instruments to be used can help students comprehend and broaden their understanding of the subject.

3. Make it relevant

Students are more engaged in active learning when subjects and lessons are relevant to real-world applications. Choose books in which the students can see themselves or their culture present. Try passion projects and real-world writing skills that include email etiquette and journaling.

4. Chunk Lessons

Lessons are more engaging when chunking is built-in. This can be done by breaking down course content into smaller chunks that are easier for students to learn and chunking the class period strategically to increase mastery of the subject. Chunking lessons help students time to dig into skills or ideas long enough to connect with them at a deeper level.

5. Bring stories to life.

You can engage students in active learning by bringing the lessons into real life. Going from line to line in textbooks and explaining to students the lessons will only bore them. Students will soon forget the most important topics if they do not spark them. Every story has an important lesson to teach that leaves an impression on them.

At Vignan Schools, one of the top CBSE schools in Hyderabad, every subject is being taught so that students enjoy being a part of the classroom and look forward to attending school sparks interest in them and boosts their creativity. Admissions are open!
