How do we up the learning quotient? Look at the stats…
10% of what we read
20% of what we hear
30% of what we see
50% of both what we see and hear
70% of what is discussed
80% of what we personally experience
95% of what we teach to someone else
So what do we do with this information? It certainly should change how we look at learning (both for ourselves and our children). We can read things…but the learning really kicks in when we actually DO something with the information we are looking at…and look what happens when we teach someone else…the learning just maxes out!!
Consider these things the next time you help your child with homework…what will you do differently? Love to hear your thoughts!
