Applied Learning is Active Learning

  • The Cone of LEarning showing that active participation helps with learning

    Applied  Learning is Active Learning.  These activities encourage learners to participate, design, demonstrate, simulate, and perform. This encompasses a more balanced approach incorporating multiple senses of speaking, performing, simulating, and designing. It is a fusion of learning modalities where learning increases as you incorporate more modalities. When we combine our senses the level of learning and comprehending increase to a level of 90%.
