Shaneece Davis conducted her research on 'Increasing Active Learning Among Students: NCCU's Introduction of Virtual Computing Lab to Grades K-12' as part of the 9th annual BDPA IT Showcase held August 4-5, 2011 in Chicago IL. In today's classrooms there are sometimes problems related to teaching students and how they retain information. Incorporating active learning into courses is a solution that would involve students in the learning process will help them to retain, recall and use information in an effective way. High School students in Durham, NC participated in a pilot program that introduced them to Virtual Computing Lab (VCL) in an effort to increase active learning. The pilot program results show that students engage in active learning when given the resources to do so.
