The benefits of learning by doing in the development of digital skills

In an increasingly technology-driven world, the acquisition of digital skills has become essential for success in many professional fields.

Learning by doing, with its emphasis on direct experimentation and the application of knowledge in real-life situations, is proving to be a particularly effective way of developing these skills.

In this article, we’ll explore the many benefits of learning by doing in the development of digital skills.

Increased commitment and motivation

Learning by doing provides a dynamic, interactive learning environment that engages and motivates learners. By working on concrete projects and tackling practical challenges, learners are more invested in their learning and more likely to persevere in the face of difficulties.

Active learning and knowledge retention

When learners are involved in hands-on activities, they are actively engaged in the learning process, which promotes better knowledge retention. By experimenting for themselves and applying concepts in real-life situations, they gain a deeper and more lasting understanding of digital skills.

Developing transferable skills

Learning by doing fosters the development of transferable skills, which can be applied in a variety of professional and personal contexts.

By working on practical projects, learners acquire skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking and collaboration, which are valuable in many areas of life.

Preparing for professional life

By exposing learners to realistic challenges and situations, learning by doing effectively prepares them for professional reality. They develop not only technical skills, but also practical skills such as project management, communication and creative thinking, which are essential for success in the world of work.

Encouraging innovation and creativity

Learning by doing encourages innovation and creativity by allowing learners to freely explore and experiment with new ideas. By working on practical projects, they are encouraged to think inventively and find innovative solutions to problems.

At GénieLab, we firmly believe in the importance of learning by doing in the development of digital skills. That’s why our educational programs emphasize direct experimentation and the application of knowledge in hands-on projects, particularly in our Tinka and Gonzo techno-creation kits.
