Old paper written pre-World Wide Web (1995) about technology and learning.
Personally I have good experience with a blended learning approach. The didactic classroom lecture with a really smart presenter has great value. I also benefit from the collaborative approach where the shared view and ideas are openly discussed and interaction takes place. There is no “The Way” to learn which meets everyone in the same fashion. My retention is a function of frequency. The more often I engage in learning a particular item, the better I retain the knowledge and information. I am subscribe to the benefits of multi-media. The old adage from Confucius (Chinese philosopher & reformer 551 BC – 479 BC) – “I see and I forget, I hear and I remember, I do and I understand” applies very much to my best learning style.
