Day 7 : Involve me and I'll understand

Today was little productive in terms of work but I couldn't spend any time on learning anything new. While going through some presentation on speakerdeck, I came across this old chinese proverb in one slide :

Tell me, I’ll forget
Show me, I’ll remember
Involve me, I’ll understand

This, I believe is something our education system has to adopt. Instead of just teaching theory and making the students study for exams, involve them.

PS: Today, it is a short post as it is already 11:57 and I don't want to miss keeping up with my advent calendar.
