Originally a Chinese Proverb, Confucius said “I hear I forget, I see I remember, I do I understand”. Benjamin Franklin attributed it as “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
Later on, an American educator named Edgar Dale further explained this through his “Cone of Learning”.
Through this he claims that in a duration of 2 weeks time we remember only
10% of what we read,
20% of what we hear,
30% of what we see,
50% of what we hear and see,
70% of what we say and write and
90% of what we actually participate in.
The more the involvement, the more we learn and remember in the long run.
