Tecniche di apprendimento attivo con esperimenti dimostrativi interattivi (Interactive Lecture Demonstrations – ILD) e l’uso di risponditori individuali (clickers)
Most introductory physics students spend the majority of their time in passive and often crowded lectures. Studies show that students learn little in such classes. The results of education research have led to the design of active learning environments (often making use of computer-assisted data acquisition tools). This paper illustrates the use of Interactive Lecture Demonstrations (ILDs) to promote active learning in lecture by encouraging students to take an active role. More recently, ILDs have been coupled with personal response systems (clickers). Examples of these will be presented along with research results demonstrating the effectiveness of different forms of ILDs.
