Chapter 1/Question 2

2. What is your theory of learning? From your perspective, how do people learn?

My theory of learning consists of not only acquiring knowledge, but being able to think through the process or the knowledge. Students can learn (memorize) facts for a test, but often did not truly learn the material. When a person truly learns, they are able to use the knowledge, the information in the future in order to think through and solve a problem.

In my opinion, people learn differently. Some people need to use their hands and perform a task in order to learn. Others need to listen. Some people need to listen and take notes for review later while others only need to view a diagram or a picture and grasp the concept.
