Ideas That Matter: Accelerated Learning

Experiential and Action learning is a development environment in which individuals feel safe to exploring and experimenting; thus learning occurs through solving real-world problems. This type of learning process is very engaging, immersive and effective because vital knowledge and relevant skills are applied in real-world scenarios within the simulated environment. And this type of learning environment is suitable for both cognitive domain and psychomotor domain learning.

With the accelerated advancement in virtual and augmented reality technologies, they will fundamentally change our lifestyle, including the way we learn a new skill and how we acquire new knowledge.

And for cognitive learning, providing the capability for students to test their hypothesis safely in a what-if scenario environment is certainly beneficial.
