Learning is the use of acquiring knowledge through one’s experiences, studies, and teachings. By reinforcing and modifying ones skills and obtaining information, a person will be able to memorize what is taught. Learning is a process; it does not happen overnight, human learning is a never-ending process. It occurs within social interactions, education, workforce, and personal development. We engage in complex thinking, spiritual beliefs, and conversations. Needless to say, learning is the most fundamental part of our daily experience. From the time we are born, we are learning how to walk, how to talk, different emotions, and so on. The study of how learning occurs is part of educational psychology, neuropsychology, learning theory and pedagogy. Pedagogy is the science and art of education: it is the study and practice of how best to teach.
The benefits of learning is the ability to develop natural abilities such as learning from one’s past mistakes, creativity ways of thinking, and increased brain power. Our mind is our most powerful weapon; it helps us adapt to change, makes social groups, and establishes valuable relationships. It also helps us establish lines of daily communication. Learning different languages impacts our attitudes and correlates to academic achievements. As a person our main focus is achieving a better sense of self, learning leads to this self-fulfillment. It will keep your mind and memory sharp, increases confidents, offers inexpensive ways to try something new, feeling of accomplishments, and even offers opportunities to learn new skills and trades to increase income. We do not learn just by being taught during class or lecture, we learn by continuously being shown something throughout our lives. Whether it is in science class or behaviors taught by our parents, we learn about what is right or wrong, increased advantages from language studies, and ability to take care of one’s self.
