"2014 Learning in America Survey"
While educators debate the most effective K-12 teaching styles, American adults prefer hands-on training, according to a new Harris Interactive poll.
Based on a representative sample of 1,000 Americans 18 and older, the polling group found that more than half reported they learned best through hands-on training—though men favored this approach more than women, 56 percent versus 47 percent.
By contrast, 25 percent of women and 40 percent of all Hispanic adults favored watching visual demonstrations the most preferred learning method for those two groups.
