How and why experiential learning works: Learning is a “whole person,” neuro-physiological process.

Increasing the sensory involvement during a lesson leads to greater retention of the information and a resultant boost in our ability to apply the lessons learned to other situations. In fact, if the instruction involves standard desk-style lesson plans that rely solely on the students’ ability to listen, the brain retains just 10% of what it takes in.  When experiential learning opportunities are integrated so that the students are involved physically, mentally and emotionally – the brain retains more than 80% of what it learns (Kovalik, Susan, ITI: The Model).

As Confucius said: I hear and I forget, 
I see and I remember, I do and I understand.
