How can we increase student motivation, buy-in and responsibility for their own learning and still keep them engaged? According to studies, active student responding can increase student success and can allow students to become more engaged in their own learning as an active participant. The idea behind active student responding is that students become responsible for their own learning by participating in activities on all levels and all students are an equal participant in the learning activities, rather than just the student who is called on or raises his or her hand. This technique has been shown to be successful with students with disabilities as well as typical students (Lerner, 2011). There are many benefits to active student responding including:

  • More student engagement
  • Increased scores on tests and quizzes
  • Less off task and out of seat behavior
  • Increased retention of facts and information
