How you learn
Posted by DAVID BC TAN under: Learning on 4 Aug 2015.
A key concern among parents is whether their child will ‘learn’ away from conventional schooling. The truth is we are all learning, formally or informally. My first responsibility as a parent is to be a learner; my own attitude towards life-long learning will be a greater influence than all the rhetoric about learning put together. Then comes my responsibility to facilitate learning.
This chart is a fascinating look at how learning takes place. I can’t vouch for the science or veracity of the percentages illustrated here (although I vaguely remember studies that have now morphed into charts like this one).
Anyway, what the chart points out is the importance of engaging all of one’s senses for learning to become meaningful. It’s an instructive guide as well as an encouragement to parents who want to be better teachers.
I picked this chart from the link here. You might want to check it out for what it says about 5 learning misconceptions. Good read! You’ll be surprised as I was about some of the ‘misconceptions’ we have bought into!
