Active Learning and how we can use it today

Dale's Cone suggests that the most effective form of learning "involves direct, purposeful learning experiences, such as hands-on or field experiences". From Dale's cone we can see the traditional way students were once taught, using verbal and visual symbols, are definitely not as effective as direct/purposeful experiences. By using ICTs, such as wikis, blogs, and e.portfolios, in the classroom today I would be providing students with the opportunity to be involved in authentic tasks with real world value.
