Hands on Learning

What is hands on learning?

Hands-on learning is a method of teaching that focuses on the process of discovery and experimentation. Students are learning by engaging in doing, rather than listening to a lecture or reading material. This type of learning helps students understand concepts better and retain information longer.

Hands-on learning is a teaching and learning strategy that involves the learner actively engaging with the material. It is most often used in classrooms but can be applied to any setting in which learners are engaged with their surroundings. The hands-on approach allows learners to experience concepts using different senses and bodily movements. This helps them connect what they see and do with what they learn.

The main aim of hands-on education is to help students gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter, while also developing higher-order thinking skills, such as problem-solving and critical thinking.

As technology changes, so do how we learn and teach in the classroom. Technology has made an impact on how we learn through simulation and modeling software that mimic real-world situations for a better understanding of underlying principles.
