Student response

 

Bob Pike’s Law #3 states “Learning is directly proportional to the amount of fun you have, The sheer joy of learning can come from involvement and participation. Few of us have the entertainment capacity of Bob Hope and Tim Allen and the ability to keep our audience for hours.” This law really resonated with me as I feel that it is the most effective in my capacity. Interactive learning and engagement enable many to really understand and grasp the materials being taught. I have heard numerous times in a classroom setting that people learn better by doing. I don’t believe that training is effective when it is boring because trainers will tend to lose the attention of most of the class. Bob continues to talk about using the energy, involvement and participation of the audience and really leveraging that to get the full attention of the trainees. He also states that reducing stress and making it a more comfortable environment will also enable most individuals to take the most out of the training. Personally I have never felt like I got much out of a boring instructional environment and I feel that by making these events more of an experience will really allow the trainer to accomplish what they are hired to do and that is to ensure the students have grasped the knowledge given. According to  Barkley, Elizabeth F., et al (2014) Some scholars believe that knowledge is developed through interactions with others, Social constructivists believe that group construct knowledge, collaboratively creating a culture of shared meaning. Rather than knowledge being held by individuals, it is socially held and is a social base phenomenon.”
