Science Engagement among Students can be improvised!

Teacher Insights

 A recent study among science students was quoted in the Journal of Educational Psychology carried out by Prof. Martin and his associates. The results showed that a new technique called ‘Load Reduction Instruction’ (LRI) can increase the science engagement as well as science achievement among students of science. The technique of LRI means the students are hand-holded with the method of guided discovery rather than imparting so much facts and concepts. Through the new technique, the students will learn the scientific concepts by themselves through experiential learning. LRI also uses minimal cognitive storage since the information is passed on by experiments or exploration. This could also develop the skill of scientific attitude. As a result, students shall be objective in problem solving as well as in decision making. Science teachers shall take a special note of the new technique ‘LRI’ to reduce the cognitive overload among students and enhance the method of guided discovery to make learning a unique experience for each child.
