Who has (does anyone have) a notion of how they might use EVS in their own classes / audiences?

Why use handsets initial idea
Why use handsets? -- initial idea EVS in their own classes / audiences?

Main problem with large classes (thought to be):

Lack of interaction, extreme passivity

A simple theory: learning depends on the time spent actually thinking.

Answering questions at least requires thinking.

Benefits to learners: Requires thinking (about topic)

1. Allows all learners, not just one, to generate an answer

2. And to register that answer

3. In privacy

4. And so to affect what happens next

Benefits to teachers:

Checking if ideas were grasped

Finding out a class' state of understanding and where its difficulties are

What would happen if
What would happen if . . . ? EVS in their own classes / audiences?

Imagine a culture that puts a high value on daughters and on small families; as a result, couples stop having more children as soon as a daughter is born.

How will this practice affect the sex ratio of the next generation?

  • There will be relatively more boys.

  • There will be relatively more girls.

  • There will be equal numbers of boys and girls.
