Abstract: The one-to-one Socratic dialogue or master-apprentice approach to learning is considered by many as ideal because of the built-in mechanism of immediate feedback and reinforcement. Others believe that cooperative learning or peer instruction is equally effective. In mass education, there are also the issues of cost per student and the predisposition of students to learn. Many use cost considerations to justify continuing the teacher-centered one-to-many “chalk and talk” approach. But a learner-centered approach is more desirable, and we describe here a cost effective way of adopting it using currently available technologies.
