Links between choice, interest, and learning in a computer-based lesson

August 1, 2011
In this study, researchers investigated links between choice, interest, and learning. They found that providing students with choices about how to initially engage with a given topic had a positive effect on their interest in learning more about the topic. The study provides concrete examples for how educators can design lessons that tap into learners' diverse interests and experiences by providing learners the opportunity to choose from multiple entry points into a given subject matter.
