Better ways to learn - Read, Hear, See, Say, Write, Do and Teach

The NTL Institute at our Bethel had come up with the concept of a learning pyramid with percentage of what people learn through various ways such as Read, Hear, See, Say, Write, Do and Teach etc. There are discussions against and supporting those percentages online. You can get to them in a simple Google search. 

Personally I have felt that effectiveness of learning improves in the following order:

  1. Read (e.g. Reading a book)

Tips for becoming effecting at learning to code

You may follow these tips to effectively learn things.

  1. Write code to learn code.

  2. Try to solve the issues you face while practicing.

  3. If you are not able to solve even after trying, look into similar discussions in Googe search or stack overflow. Even experienced developers use these websites often. You may also check our forums at Heartin.tech, CloudMaterials.com and JavaJee.com.

  4. If you are following a course with an option to ask doubts to an instructor, ask. You may also discuss with friends or coleagues.

Understanding Numbers - Natural, Whole, Integers, Rational, Irrational, Real

We have all learned about numbers in school. However, since you have not used these terms much over the years some of us might have forgotten some of these. Let us tru to recollect them (if we have forgotten them :) ).

Understanding Logarithms

We need the knowledge of logarithms in many places including calculating time complexity of an algorithm to advanced data analytics calculations. Here are some useful references to learn about logarithms online.

Notes:

  1.  Introduction to Logarithms (MathisFun)

  1. Introduction to Logarithm (DeltaStep) - Explanation is good, but pronunciation seems not perfect at times.

Membership Fee Based Open Learning - Proposal

We can follow a membership-fee based open learning where we can attend any program or course we want to attend, rather than registering for only one course. There should however be a good booking  and course switching mechanism to avoid overcrowded classes.

No initiative can survive without contributions from its users in terms of efforts, money or even spreading the word. This is a proposal for a maintenance fee for the website. This is a minimum contribution proposal, users may contribute more towards the maintenance fund as donations. 

Open Source Project for Education (OSPE) Pool for Real World Project Experience with Training

All technology courses should be taught hands on. Only when you work on a real problem and make your hands dirty you will really learn. But this everyone knows and most trainers will tell you this upfront. What I am going to suggest is one more level of commitment to both teaching and learning, and that is the ability to work on a real world project.
