"I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand".
Good in principle! I'm involved in a local quiz league and it's amazing
the amount of totally "useless" information (both heard and seen) that is
I also know a lot of engineers who "do" without "understanding". May not
be ideal but they often don't need to know how something works in order to
use it. They now if they press buttons X, Y and Z the machine will do A.
To operate the machine that is all they need to know. If it breaks down
then they call another engineer who has had more training etc and does know
"understand" the machine.
