Abstract

Learning by doing is often talked about but rarely put into practice. It's easier for schools and businesses to fall back on the "drill them and test them" approch to education. This report discusses why learing by doing is the best educational approach because it capitalizes on people's natural learning mechanisms. Learning by doing builds a case base of functional skills and knowledge that are relevant to the learner.
