Far from being a method of teaching reserved for only elementary-level students, the notion of the interactive classroom has been realised even at the highest stages of education (we’re talking tertiary institutions like Harvard!) -  but if you still need more convincing,have a read of the following benefits.

Free online courses from UCAS to help students, parents, and teachers make big decisions

UCAS has launched a series of innovative online courses to help today’s students, and the people who advise them, navigate the tricky business of deciding what to do when they leave secondary education.

Young people have a greater range of options than ever before when considering their next steps after school or college, and most rely on busy teachers or parents and carers for advice and guidance.

To help teaching staff and advisers explore university, college, work, apprenticeships, and other choices, and to advise their students about contemporary choices, UCAS is running a pair of free online courses: one for teachers and advisers, followed by an accompanying course for their students.
