Interactive Classroom – What is an interactive classroom? What are the advantages? How to achieve it?

Interactive classroom is an emerging educational concept aimed at changing the traditional teacher centered teaching model, emphasizing active student participation and collaborative learning. In interactive classrooms, students are no longer passive recipients of knowledge, but become the main body of learning, actively participating in classroom activities, interacting and communicating with teachers and other students, and jointly exploring knowledge.

The core concept of interactive classrooms is student-centered, emphasizing the development of students’ personalities and the cultivation of their comprehensive qualities. In interactive classrooms, teachers are no longer simply knowledge transmitters, but become learning partners and guides for students, guiding them to discover and solve problems, cultivating their innovative thinking and self-learning abilities. At the same time, interactive classrooms also emphasize collaborative learning among students, cultivating their teamwork and communication skills through group discussions, team projects, and other forms.
