- first, make the classes interactive. Allow the students to participate, not only listen. With tools such at social networks, this is easy to implement.
- second, let the students interact not only outside class, but also in class. Actually, make it mandatory. Create classes the require the students to work together. Don’t send them home to stay up until late with nothing but a big book of algebra problems and a pen&paper besides them. Encourage them to solve it together. Of course, this is harder than it sounds (what if there’s one student smarter than the others? what if some students don’t want to participate in a adventure?), but I feel like this is the right way to move forward.
