Times rapidly change, and students’ need to learn, in different and more engaging ways than in the past, has made new, sophisticated methods of teaching emerge. Traditional, old methods of teaching have been proven to be obsolete and, often, unfriendly to students. This new reality must be addressed in secondary schools in order to comply with students’ needs and personal preferences.
The present Special Issue embraces research papers and case studies that focus on innovative methods in teaching in secondary education. These could be experiential learning methods, methods of teaching with the aid of new technologies, teaching through art, active learning and teaching through students’ field research, among others.
These innovative methods are discussed in terms of effectiveness and in terms of the transformational impact they might have on students’ views, attitudes and behaviours, as well as on students’ way of learning. In this way, the present Special Issue contributes to the existing literature by enriching it with the latest innovative methods and by presenting the best practices in teaching in secondary education.
