Confucius Quote about learning

Confucius Quote about learning

What I hear, I forget. What I see, I remember. What I do, I understand. -Confucius
I think this saying is very poetic in talking about schools and classroom lecturing. If we just lecture we will not have long-term learning. When you see it you may remember it longer. But if you really want to understand a subject do it and do it again this helps commit it to long-term learning. Now if you want to take it one step further then teach what you know to someone else. If you feel proficient in what you have learned this is good but it takes on the next level of learning to be able to teach someone else.
