Shift Students' Roles from Passive Observers to Active Participants. Engaging students, especially disinterested ones, in the learning process is no easy task, especially when easy access to information is at an all-time high. How do educators simultaneously ensure knowledge acquisition and engagement? Ron Nash encourages teachers to embrace an interactive classroom by rethinking their role as information givers. The Interactive Classroom provides a framework for how to influence the learning process and increase student participation by sharing: * Proven strategies for improving presentation and facilitation skills * Kinesthetic, interpersonal, and classroom management methods * Brain-based teaching strategies that promote active learning * Project-based learning and formative assessment techniques that promote a robust learning environment .
