Learning by Doing
Doing is an activity that involves either manipulating information mentally or physically manipulating an object.
The mental manipulation of information differs from reflection in that it normally involves a planned exercise or activity, where as reflection is more a free-form activity that normally involves a lot of “what ifs.”
