Involve Me and I Learn

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.
