It's best to engage children in small groups, around 15 children to one teacher, so that all children receive personalized attention and the opportunity to ask questions.
Interactive learning becomes possible when group sizes are small, and every child gets an opportunity to question and seek answers.
- Emphasis is on asking questions, as that removes all inhibitions among children.
- This approach also opens up conversations among children, and between teacher and students.
- Every child gets personalized attention, and understands and learns at his or her own pace.
- When children are asked to write their understanding in their own words, it develops their expression abilities.
- 'Cheating' or borrowing ideas is not frowned upon, as it can help in peer-to-peer learning.
