To make a vibrant learning environment have to got to be able to catch the attention of students and captivate them.2 An activity can be carried out during the lessons. An example of the activity is by playing board games such as Monopoly. Monopoly can be used during Math lessons. As the game Monopoly involves money, it requires students to count and use whatever skills they had been taught in class. Not only that, students will also be able to enjoy themselves.3 As a student, I have always thought that it would be more exciting if the lesson involves the use of a computer. With the help of technology we will be able to watch videos and have powerpoints sildes. Students would be more interested if the lesson involves the use of computers. Not only does it keep us captivated throughout the lesson but also save time for the teachers. Imagine having to write a whole paragraph on the board.4 Thirdly, story-telling. I think story-telling have a huge impact on the students. With story-telling, students would be eager to listen and hence, teachers can apply their stories to their teaching. An example of subjects that can be associated with story- telling is History. Students dont get bored easily and would look forward to the subject.5 However, to make students interested in studying, the same method cannot constantly be applied. If so, students might get over it and lose interest in studying all over again.6 Therefore, I believe that a vibrant learning environment at school is a place where a student can enjoy themselves while studying. there are many ways to conduct a lesson but the key to capture the students interest.
