The evolution of learning

Over the years, learning has evolved to help people understand better and remember longer. The following are various steps of learning evolution.

Learning by hearing: Ancient India had the Gurukul system, where lessons were spoken by the Guru and students learned by listening.

Learning by seeing, hearing, and doing: In the traditional setting, schools use a combination of lectures and textbooks. Students learn by listening, reading, and writing. Of late, many schools have started using labs and other hands-on activity methods to supplement learning through experiments.

Learning by engaging the imagination: eLearning uses computer-based systems to create simple animations and voice, thereby adding life to lessons. Unlike printed textbooks, this audio-visual medium enables students to imagine small details and learn concepts more effectively.

And finally, learning by interaction: Interactive Learning or iLearning takes the best aspects of learning by seeing, hearing, doing, and imagination and adds the element of interactivity. Each lesson is brought 100% alive through animation, and students are placed in interesting interactive situations like KBC Quizzes, Virtual Labs, and so on.
