How to lecture a large class interactively

Handling Large Class is something complicated. The long lecturing on a ‘very boring’ topic will make students sleepy. It will also influence the credibility of the instructor. Using PowerPoint contain not only explanation but also cases, problems and discussion topic will be interesting. It will keep the students focus on the materials delivered. The classroom with computers and LAN will be more interactive since the instructor can send the quizzes and task to the students’ computer so they can answer and do the task and send them back to the server. It can directly be discussed without erasing the board and writing back the other answers from the other students. It means that by using technology the instructor can save the time for any other important things like explaining some parts that the students still do not understand.
Those are what I can reflect from the articles that I read in week 6.
