Quotes of Author: Jody-capehart
The cone of learning says that we remember 10 percent of what we read, 20 percent of what we hear, 30 percent of what we see, 50 percent of what we see and hear, 75 percent of what we see, hear and talk about, and 90 percent what we see, hear, talk about and do. The main message from these statistics is that the more a child can interact with all of his senses, the more apt he is to retain what he has been taught...(According to Deuteronomy 6:6-9) God warned the Israelites to internalize His teaching so He presented His word, stated His goal, and then provided for each learner's style. He used a variety of methods to motivate.
