The science behind Hands-On Learning


The hands-on learning experience is found to be more effective in teaching students on maths and science subject. ATLAB promotes hands-on learning more than the conventional teaching process.


It is no surprise that hands-on work is the best learning process. Conventional classroom training will not provide the same kind of training as actually doing something yourself. Hands-on learning in UAE by ATLAB educational solution provider is an effective teaching procedure that can have such a large impact on how children gather information and study.


Hands-on activities are encouraged for anyone looking to learn something new regardless of age. Our brain perceives hands-on learning differently. It is found that two separate memory systems are utilized. The first reason behind this is semantic memory while the other is episodic memory, in which each being in different locations of the brain.


Semantic memory consists of all of the things we set out to learn and remember like mathematics, history and even something as simple as a multiplication table or alphabetical order. There is a reason we have all been taught the correct answer to these questions, but it is because of the semantic memory that we are capable of remembering and retrieving the answers.


When it comes to remembering where you were last night or what you did for your birthday last year, the information is stored in our episodic memory which is the reason why we find past memory as episodes. Think of it as our autobiography and the events that have made up who we are and what we have done. This information is stored effortlessly and is related to our time each day.


It is the combination of these two systems that helps us to live our life each day. Although they are accomplished with two completely separate pieces of the brain, the two workings together accomplish so much. However, it is possible for one to work better than the other, or even for one to completely lose touch with reality.


Knowing and understanding the impact of each of these memory systems can help one truly recognize the benefits of hands-on activities. Whether it is in the classroom or right in your own living room, hands-on activities are ever so important to further the education, learning abilities, and overall intelligence of your brain regardless of what the material is that is being learned.
