The following paragraph taken from a course, Rethinking Digital Literacy, hit home with me. I think it is very important that classes should be taught hands-on if at all possible. People can learn from what we tell them, and from what we show them, but when they can put it into practice right away it helps them retain what they are being taught.
"Lest we find ourselves buried under jargon, let’s keep our eyes on the prize: our learning opportunities should foster learner engagement through participation rather than through passive absorption of material through lectures, and those opportunities should be learner-centric (focusing on what learners need rather than emphasizing solely what instructors believe the learners need) and collaborative."
