Imagine walking into a classroom. Do you picture students who are noisy and active, walking around and talking to one another? Or are they quiet and focused, with the teacher leading a discussion from the front of the class? More often than not, we would assume that the loud classroom is unorganized and unproductive, and the hushed classroom is where the real learning is happening.
However, a recent study from Science Daily reaffirms the positive educational effects of a loud and busy environment. The research shows that learning and memory benefit from active involvement. This means that adding an active measure to the classroom, such as speaking out loud and with a group of others, can create more of an impact on long-term memory.
