Top reasons why hands-on learning is a formula for success:
Because hands-on learning stimulates the use of many senses, it helps to remember or retain information and knowledge because our brain associates it with touching, seeing, and hearing. We all turn our heads when we hear a familiar voice because our brain associates it with a sign that our senses have picked up.
Practical learning confronts real situations that require solutions. In this way, students can apply their knowledge to solving a real-life problem enabling problem-solving, creative and innovative skills.
Contrasting hands-on learning with traditional learning, the former is more motivating and engaging, as we feel some sense of fulfillment and satisfaction after completing a task or project. These two components (motivation and engagement) help in better concentration, resulting in more productive learning.
Experience and practical skills gained from hands-on learning are valuable components of success on the job. We bet you’ve heard hundreds of times that “someone with experience is needed.” Well, hands-on learning provides that experience.
Hands-on learning pits students against each other, and they must work together to succeed. Such experiences develop communication, leadership, and teamwork skills, all highly valued by employees.
