									Active Learning
      Let’s get physical!
Learning Outcomes:
   Demonstrate how active learning
    strategies (complex and simple) can
    be incorporated into the classroom

   Experience an active learning
    environment

   Discover at least one idea you can
    use in the classroom
Activity One
    List one question you would like answered
    or posed to the group about active learning.
    Use the paper provided and wait for
    instructions.
Activity Two
    On index card or sheet of paper
    provided, indicate a class, topic or
    situation where you would like to
    incorporate active strategies.
   Traditional Teaching
What is Active Learning?
   When learning is active, the participants do
    most of the work.
   Some general characteristics are commonly
    associated with the use of strategies
    promoting active learning in the classroom:
          Students are involved in more than listening
          Less emphasis on transmitting information
           and more on developing skills
          Students are involved in higher order thinking
          Students are engaged in activities
    In a traditional lecture,
    learners are not attending to
    what is being said…


 A - 10% of the time
 B - 20% of the time
 C - 30% of the time
 D - 40% of the time
Research shows that
learners retain…
 10% of what they read
 20% of what they hear
 30% of what they see
 50% of what they see and hear
 70% of what they say as they talk
 90% of what they say as they do
Activity Three
    Each group has been assigned one
    of the questions posted on flip chart
    paper. Write your responses on the
    paper. At the leaders signal, rotate
    clockwise to the next sheet.
    Contribute any additional thoughts to
    the sheet.

   DIALOGUE WITH

     Others
Activity Four
    Each group will receive one or more
    index cards with a topic listed.
    Generate a list of ideas/strategies
    based on that topic.
Activity Five
   Bring out your index cards/sheets of
    paper with your topic or problem
    written on it.
   In pairs, use the ideas that have been
    generated (as well as the hand-out)
    to make a list of ideas which could
    be used in that class.
Tips
   Plan ahead, considering amount of time to allow for the activity,
    logistics involved in grouping or pairing students, and careful wording of
    instructions.

    Assign reasonable, yet tight time allotment for each aspect of the
    learning experience.


    Move quickly from one phase of the activity to the next, i.e., from the
    setup and instructions to the student processing to the reporting.

   Watch the time and announce "2-minute warning" or other intervals
    appropriate to the length of the activity.
  Give clear and specific instructions, providing printed instructions
for each student, when appropriate, and going over them in class.

  Put time limits on feedback reports and make the feedback process
efficient. Appoint roles or ask for volunteers for group recorder,
reporter, etc.

 Hold students accountable for out-of-class assignments and
preparation so they're ready to contribute to the activity during class.

 Conduct group work during class time as much as possible so you
can facilitate.

 Use a variety of Active Learning strategies and avoid patterns that
become ruts, such as repeating an activity every class period.
