There was a sign in my 6th grade math classroom that said "You learn..." and then a list of different ways to learn and how much you get out of each. I liked that poster. I don't remember much of it, but I remember two stats off that poster: you learn more by seeing than hearing, and you learn 81% of what you teach to others.
I find this really intriguing. Most teachers teach visually, and some hands-on, which is even better -- but when does any teacher have us teach to each other?
However, I've seen the poster. Whenever I study something, I "teach" Mom from my notes. Usually she already knows the material, but that just means that we teach each other. Maybe I should teach her math. Except I don't need much help remembering math stuff.
So next time you learn something, teach it to someone else. You'll learn it even better, and they'll learn it too.
