12:30:00 PM - Building Active Classrooms: A discussion from students - The term Active Classroom has become very popular in the past decade. Research has shown that students, when allowed to apply the cognitive information they learn through meaningful experiences, connect deeper with the material and enjoy the classroom experience more. While research has shown this to be an very valuable experience that increases, sometimes students are not consulted.
