Title: Active Teaching and Learning
Url: http://wimedialab.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ates12.pd.gractive/ac...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: In this professional development video from Getting Results, Dr. John Bransford, professor of education at the University of Washington School of Education, and an instructor talk about how to engage students. Bransford says engagement involves getting students interested in working on problems they have some knowledge about, followed by reflection on different learning strategies. The instructor is shown facilitating a physics experiment. His students try to predict the outcome of the experiment, and then discuss their findings as a group. Bransford concludes by saying that classroom activities connecting theory with practice help students to value what they learn. The 3:54 video is accompanied by a background essay and discussion questions. Users who sign up for a free account can download the video as well.
