How Practice can enhance student learning?
Practice is extremely essential to students’ learning as it helps them remember. The more no of times a student practices something, the more likely they are to learn and remember it i.e. the things learnt are likely to stay in his/her memory for longer periods of time. Practice also allows students by providing them an opportunity to demonstrate mastery of skills taught in classrooms; to increase speed, gain expertise and also improve skills, at the same time. Also, there are numerous methods in which a student can engage, allowing him/her to learn information at various stages of retention. A fine example of this would be the Learning Pyramid which highlights the theory of learning that in the learning process, active participation results in higher learning retention.
The base of the learning pyramid constitutes the best method for retention. ‘Lecture’ contributes to just 5% in learning and ‘practicing by doing’ contributes to 75% retention rates. Students also have to note that practice cannot alone make perfect, but learning can be optimized if they practice in the right way, strategically. This is made possible through EPracto.
