To learn by doing
It means being practically involved in the activities under the 4-K Club programmes and projects.
Research indicates that people learn best when they actually do a task. It has been found out that one remembers:
- 10% by reading
- 20% by hearing
- 30% by seeing
- 50% by seeing and hearing
- 70% by saying it ourselves
- 80% by experience
- 95% by saying and doing it ourselves (William Glasser, 1925).
- For example by growing your own crops you learn to be a better farmer
