Active Learning & ICT
Active learning implies an
active role of the learner in the process of achieving new knowledge or skills
and is associated with the term learning by doing. Pupils who actively engage with the material are more likely to recall information later and to be able to use that information in different contexts (Bruner 1961), (Piaget 1970)
Active learning requires carefully constructed activities
that challenge the learners to perform the tasks the instructor has in mind. It can be done in many forms, like problem-based learning, project based learning, discovery learning, inquiry-based learning, simulations, games, writing papers, debating ...
... All forms are based upon learning by doing and learners are engaged in their own learning. To develop skills and competences learners must thoroughly reflect on their actions. And last, but not least active learning is often done cooperatively
