The keys to success in the classroom are to convince students that what they are learning is important and to engage them in the active learning process.
When possible, I let students participate in deciding what they learn and how they learn, because this freedom to explore individual interests creates a rich educational environment. In an era where digital technology allows too much passive observation, it is imperative that we capitalize on the strengths of technology while ensuring that active learning is still taking place in the classroom and beyond.
