Please view my TEDx talk at:… This video includes a few students and teachers providing honest feedback relating to the positive impact of Active Learning. Hello friends, my name is Troy Wittmann, and I want to help teachers engage their students in the learning process. After two decades of teaching, I have discovered one absolute truth: our students want to be active participants in the learning process. Fortunately, the days of “chalk and talk” or the teacher being the lone “sage on the stage” are becoming less prevalent. Today students want and deserve more. An old Native American expression captures this sentiment perfectly: “Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may not remember. Involve me and I will understand.” I have written a book and completed a video series on Active Learning. The book is entitled: 33⅓ Active Learning Strategies. It comes with a companion set of eight DVD’s and one futuristic, musical CD. The DVD’s contain 33⅓ separate HD videos with an average runtime of 15 minutes. The Active Learning Strategies explained in the book and on the DVD’s can be used from elementary through high school and even for adult learners. All you need to do is adjust the questions and statements to meet your goals and objectives. Of course, these strategies may also be used to address local, state, and Common Core Standards. One specific method of engaging our students that my faith has inspired me with is known simply as the Teachingrocks Time Machine™. I can’t wait to show you how it all works. Thank you, Troy Wittmann Teacher
