Image result for experiential learning

Gaining knowledge and skills through practical and training, is more productive in comparison to learning only through textbooks. I agree to the above statement because it is the most effective way to remember the lesson, a person can learn how the bookish knowledge can be effectively utilized and opens up diverse ways to demonstrate creativity.

A student learns numerous lessons from the books, but experimenting that education will have a deeper impact on his mind. He would remember those lessons throughout his life. For instance in most of the Engineering curriculum a six months of practical and industry exposure is mandatory. This helps the students to utilize his bookish knowledge effectively in field.

Utilizing the knowledge gained through the education and implementing it practically, will help the student to apply that learning in his daily life. Thus the concepts are clarified when put to practical purpose. In this way a student develops skills and gain experience. For example, students studying in IIM (Indian Institute of Management) in India, learn the business strategies through simulating hundreds of case studies and comes up with diverse solutions. These solutions are then implemented in various business houses to achieve success.

Practical learning develops and brings out the creativity among the students. Instead of learning already established facts, they are encouraged to come with variety of solutions to a particular problem. A lot of inventions and discoveries are happening across the globe because of the creative minds which the students have developed. Steve Jobs, Bill Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison are few persons who have used their creativity to contribute to the mankind.

To encapsulate, learning through books and implementing the knowledge accordingly to create something new is the best way for effective learning.
