What We Believe About Learning

Consider this:

We Learn About...

10% of what we READ

20% of what we HEAR

30% of what we SEE

50% of what we both SEE & HEAR

70% of what we DISCUSS with others

80% of what we EXPERIENCE personally

95% of what we TEACH to someone else

Adapted from Eldon Ekwall, 1974
