Learn by teaching

"Students learn more when they construct learning experiences for others.
You might be familiar with the "learning pyramid" which states that students
remember 10% of what they read, 20% of what they hear, 30% of what is
demonstrated to them, 50% of what they discuss, and 75% of what they
practice. That same pyramid states that students retain 90% of what they
teach others. You can check the learning pyramid at:

From: Moodle 1.9 Teaching Techniques by William Rice and Susan Smith Nash, p. 10.

Yeah Mary. Speaking in percentages, you are 100% correct. =)
Anytime you have to teach something, you are forced to plan, think and act on what you learned which really drives it home.

Mary,

I usually have my students explain(teach) things they are taught.This is a very effective way of improving their performance.

Thanks for sharing...

Some forum members have very good English but only come here to ask questions, never answer other colleagues’s questions. I'm sure they are missing a very good opportunity to learn.
