Abstract

When we look at how students are being taught nowadays, we see teachers changing from a traditional lecture style to a more active learning approach. Active learners refer to students who are involved in their own learning process through various methods of hands on activities. Active leaning emphasizes on engaging students in different activities (e.g., reading, discussing, and writing) and developing students skills, attitudes and values. Research shows indications of positive outcomes when implementing an active learning style for students, it will help them retain more information in long-term memory.
