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.

The fact is, there is a “course” that addresses every issue we will ever face. The Teacher loves to meet one-on-one with His students, so that He can tailor the course to our needs. He is willing to hold class every day that we are willing to meet. We already have the Textbook, which was written by the Teacher Himself. Parts of it can be difficult to grasp. But the Teacher is always available – twenty-four hours a day – to help us understand.

No wonder Jesus used visuals!…( Most importantly) Jesus very life was a visual, reinforcing what He taught.

Read through the Gospels, and you quickly conclude that Jesus was a dynamic, remarkably effective teacher. Never boring, always stimulating. Never obtuse, always clear. Never pompous or distant, always personal and lovingly concerned.
