LC Module: Brain Quest Reviews

“Brainstorming can be used as an effective method to activate prior knowledge. Available research evidence also supports the general effectiveness of brainstorming techniques compared with the traditional lecture method. Brainstorming elicits higher levels of reflective thinking and creative problem solving, including synthesis, application and evaluation. There is also evidence that information learned through active discussion is generally retained better than material learned through lecture. Moreover, students often prefer to participate in discussion rather than to be passive learners in a lecture.” (Kapel,1988 as stated Keshwan, 2014).
