Na aprendizagem ativa, entende-se que o aluno não deve ser meramente um "recebedor" de informações, mas deve se engajar de maneira ativa na aquisição do conhecimento, focando seus objetivos e indo atrás do conhecimento de maneira pró-ativa. Mas como isso funciona ? Bem, parece interessante, mas na prática como isso funciona ? Em primeiro lugar, é necessária uma mudança filosófica na postura do professor em sala de aula.
