Low-Tech & Hi-Tech: Promoting Active Learning

Often times when we walk by a classroom, we see the instructor in front of the classroom lecturing and the students sitting in rows passively learning.  How can we introduce some “controlled chaos” into our classrooms in order to promote active learning?  Using the student-centered learning pedagogy, faculty members can design activities that engage the students and promote deep learning of the content.  During this Ignite! presentation, the presenters will provide some examples of student-centered activities first in the “low-tech” format then the same activity in the “hi-tech” format.  Clickers and iPads will be used for the hi-tech activities
