Engaging: Imagine your teacher presenting a visual presentation of what you have just studied in your textbooks. Isn’t it interesting to see your imagination come alive? A visual presentation of a chapter is more engaging and helps you remember things in a better way.
Enhances your Critical Thinking: Interactive learning is much more than just putting in memorised information in your brain. It challenges you to participate in the discussion and stimulates your brain further. It pushes you to apply your logic and imagination. In the process, you sharpen your critical thinking skills, which can help you in the long run too.
Concentration Span: As a human being, our concentration power is limited. Our brain can stay focused for a limited period of time. And, because there are always distractions around, students tend to get disturbed easily. Through interactive learning, students are engrossed in study for a longer period of time, and hence, an improved concentration span!
Interesting: Yes! Interactive learning seems interesting to students. Technology and the young generation are easily compatible. And, interactive learning is a product of advanced technology. Therefore, here learning becomes fun!
The speed with which interactive learning is gaining momentum proves that it has a wider scope in education.
