Some folks are desperate to be shown how to do something. Some people like to explore and make mistakes. Some like to be told. Some like a combination of these and some make it up as they go along.
There is nothing inherently better about any mode of learning. It’s which mode or modes work for you and how in different circumstances or subjects your learning modes change.
It’s about being willing to try different techniques or styles. Working on a computer. Working with pencil and paper. Taking linear notes. Doing a “Mind Map” or two. Listening to audio on your audio player or video on your video player. Surf the Internet. Watch TV. Read a book or journal. So much variety for you to explore and enjoy.
