The COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost every aspect of society and the education sector is no exception. As a result of the pandemic, schools switched entirely to online, remote, or modular instruction. As a result, teachers being the frontline in the educational field have to deal with insurmountable pedagogical challenges while fighting pandemic paranoia in their own households. Around the world, countries are reverting to partial or full in-person learning. Having been learning remotely for nearly two years, children whose health and well-being are at risk because of the pandemic. This calls for an innovative and creative approach, and thus requires schools to modify their instructional practices and models. Is the world ready to face this challenge? This review provides an overview of the active learning model with emphasis on (1) Theoretical Framework of Active Learning (2) Benefits and Challenges as well as the implementation process (3) Implications to Practice. Analysis showed that active learning is a potential approach to reinvigorate and motivate students back to in-person learning. As schools around the world return to in-person instruction, this paper discusses the many reasons for implementing Active Learning. The author conveys the multiple benefits of actively involving students in the learning process, in contrast to delivering the content to students through direct teaching.
