What is the most effective way for you to be taught?
Do you remember stories that were told to you better than you remember stories that you read to yourself?
How about when you play a game? Do you remember all the rules after you read the instructions once, or is it easier for you to start playing the game and learn as you go?
I think for most people it takes a mix of reading the instructions and rules, having a coach or team mate explain the game, and then practicing and playing the game to truly master the concepts of the game.
That is why I am so excited to get Stukent into the hands of as many university professors as possible.
By the way, Edutopia created a fun, interactive questionnaire that tells you about your preferred learning styles.
