    Active Learning

    Reproducing the article on Active Learning by our expert , Shraddha Das, NIIT Ltd. 

    To understand Active learning, we first have to understand what does Learning means.

    Learning is a continuous process of acquiring new knowledge; modifying or reinforcing already learned or acquired knowledge, accumulation of experiences, skills & values and creation of new things. Thus, learning reflects change in behavior.

    Active learning refers to the process wherein the learners are actively involved and acquiring learnings by following various strategies, tools and techniques. In classrooms, where learner’s concentration level fluctuates, educators may create active learning environment by engaging learners in various activities including individual, peer & group activities. The selection of the activity depends on:

    • Class size
    • Physical space
    • Learning objectives
    • Learning style
    • Duration of the activity
    • Comfort level of the educator using the strategy or tool

    Some of the individual activities include reading, writing, journal writing, problem-solving, observation skill etc. Some of the group activities are group discussions, debate, role plays, experiments & practical, cooperative learning, projects etc. Use of such tools in teaching learning process help learners acquire the first-hand experience of the concepts, instead of memorizing the concepts, and help the learners to apply the learnings in their real life.

    Involved learners enjoy school and become lifelong learners. Numerous research studies have shown the value of active learning, particularly in improving the achievement level of the lowest-performing students and minorities (Johnson & Holubec - 1992; Kagan- 1994; Slavin- 1983).

    During active learning, educators continuously try to challenge learners’ thinking process through various case-studies, providing abstract situations, creating simulated environments etc. Learners must be engaged in activities which help in developing higher-order thinking skills like analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. A cross-curricular approach, inquiry based method, problem- solving method could also be adopted for promoting active leaning in classroom. Learners must be given opportunities to take part in decision making and planning activities in other areas of learning also.

    In order to create participation of all the learners in active learning process, the classroom arrangement needs to be flexible seating to allow for the creation of small groups & simulated environment for various activities.

    Expected Benefits of Active Learning:

    Active learning helps to develop the different learning domain areas of the learner, such as, knowledge, skills and attitudes, development of which in turn are the ultimate goals of learning. Active learning helps to develop the following skills among learners:

    ·         Improved critical thinking skills
    ·         Increased retention and transfer of new information
    ·         Increased motivation
    ·         Improved interpersonal skills

    Active learning in the classroom allows learners to take responsibility for their own learning. Teachers become facilitators rather than repositories of knowledge. Active learning has many benefits:

    • Allows each learner to be recognized and rewarded for special strengths;
    • Provides opportunities for learners to adapt their studies to their interests and learning preferences;
    • Reduces the chances of boredom by offering a variety of activities; and
    • Provides a teaching/learning methodology that works.

    How do we create an environment that supports active learning in our school?

    CTET-FEB 2014 Results Analysis: Only 1.79% Qualify CTET

    As per reports, just 1.79% of test takers cleared the CTET-FEB 2014 exam. 8.26 lac candidates had applied out of which 750,722 applicants wrote the exam. Out of this a mere 13,428 or 1.79% of test takers qualified in the latest edition of the exam. This means that 55 out of 56 candidates failed to qualify.

    This is not the worst result. In the NOV 2012 exam only 1% candidates had qualified. However the duration of the exam has been increased since then and 11% candidates had qualified in CTET JULY-13. The feb exam was seen as more difficult than the previous version and we had predicted that results would be worse than the July-13 exam.

    Successful candidates can now apply for positions in government schools. Other candidates would now be looking forward to the next edition to realize their dream of getting a government job or or may look at respective state TETs

    Further details are awaited.
