Do you learn better in-person ? Attending presentations, meeting, swapping ideas and business cards, and joining discussion groups —these are just a few aspects of in-person training events that cannot be replaced by other forms of online education.
We tend to learn better in-person.
Although the advantages of telecommunications cannot be ignored —it makes communication instantaneous, cheaper, and more convenient—it’s important to remember that before all the advancements in science and technology, people used to interact with each other more.
Why is this? Because of the fundamental reality that humans are social beings. The young and an increasing number of adults now find themselves active on social media, but their search for connections show that people crave human interaction. According to Ray Williams, a contributing writer for Psychology Today, human interaction is fundamental to one’s life and is one of the defining human characteristics that separate us from the rest of the species in the animal kingdom.
