Interaction helps in developing social skills, improves language learning and spontaneity of a child. Students always love interacting but at Springfield Public School, one of the top boarding schools in India we make sure it is in a productive way.
Here are some of the results of what interaction in a class helps the students:
• Improves Critical Thinking of Children
Students need to participate in the discourse of the discipline to think, speak, and be heard. Students develop competency to think in a classroom that provides opportunities for intensive, structured interaction among students when they speak instead of just listening.
• Increases Motivation
Classroom interaction fuels student motivation and stimulates students’ involvement in the class. It helps the students see the relevance of teachers’ topic and increases participation as all students are involved.
• Improves Teamwork Skills
When there is an interaction of students among themselves, it allows the student to learn and understand how to work with partners. This develops and improves the skills of teamwork and it improves peer relationship and they can learn from each other as well.
• Teaches Values to Students
Whether the interaction is among small groups of students or whole-class discussion, or student-teacher interaction, learners interacting this way in aninteractive classroom learn the importance of patience and to value the point of view of others.
Collaborative learning, particularly through the use of collaborative tasks such as role plays and conversation works best in fostering language development since learners can see a reason to use language in order to interact.
• Increases Self- Confidence
For students who are hesitant, an interactive classroom environment helps them in pushing their capabilities to speak which boosts self- confidence of children.
Thus, student engagement is important for the overall development of a child. We, at Springfield Public School, among the top 10 boarding schools in India believe in bringing out the best in a child and improving their overall personality.
