How does this sequence of activities foster student learning?

Pair up, discuss this question, then share with the group.
Good Questions, Deep Learning
Leveraging Diversity
Placemark Qs + PollEv
Pose a question or assign a task.
Have students spend time working independently.
Have students work together in small groups. Your definition of "small" may vary.
Ask all students (individually or in groups) to share their work the whole class. Technology helps. Aggregation helps.
Analyze the students' work together, as a class. Let them do as much of the heavy lifting as they can.

228 studies comparing active learning to traditional lecturing

Active Learning: "learning through activities and/or discussion in class... emphasizes higher-order thinking and often involves group work”

Traditional Lecture: "continuous exposition by the teacher"
Freeman et al. (2014)
"One of the problems with lectures—and especially in the extreme form of 'continuous exposition by the teacher'—is that we don't know what’s going on in students' heads during the exposition. So, yes, there's an opportunity for students to... dismiss, take issue, agree, and make connections, but we don't know if that's what's going on."
