How do you learn? Most of us grew up in an environment where we sat in straight rows at neat little desks, listening to teachers ramble on about the topic of the moment. If we were lucky, we had instructors that were engaging. But, conversely, many of us endured long stretches of boredom in stuffy classrooms. Learning became a sort-of spectator sport, where we watched and listened, memorizing endless lists of dates and other trivia, our patience tested to the limit.
