The aim of education should be to convert the mind into a living fountain, and not a reservoir. That which is filled by merely pumping in, will be emptied by pumping out.- John M Mason
Learning is a lifelong process of coordinating and comprehending new and learnt concepts alike. For example, when we learn the essentials for plant growth, we understand the importance of light and water for photosynthesis. This piece of information becomes complete when we place our plant pot under sufficient light in proper soil and pour adequate water to it. Thus, learning requires the continuous need to engage and advance the knowledge as we absorb new concepts and ideas.
A balanced relationship among teachers and students caters to the outcomes of teaching and learning. Imagine sitting in a classroom where there is no interaction and knowledge is imparted only through textual material? This will bring student disengagement, they feel bored or sleepy during class.
Learning through discussions and activities has proved to be an important element in identifying student interests and performance. Peer discussion and class discussions are improved modes of bringing students to put forth their concerns and perspectives regarding a particular topic. For instance, after watching a movie, we discuss its plot and characters with our friends and family. This clears various themes and ideas in the movie and gives us an idea on how others viewed the film. The same concept can be applied for student interaction and comprehension through class activities.
According to study among average retention rates, 50% attention can be drawn from group discussions, 75% from practice and 90% from teaching others. Participatory methods of teaching have been proven to improve student understanding and allow them to connect the points in learning and strengthen the concepts in due process. Basic lectures can be supported through audio-visual elements, demonstrations and class activities.
Online platforms are the new advancements in learning, where smartphones and laptops are becoming interactive screens for class activities. So how can we utilize the destructive effects of mobile screens into useful engagement tools?
