What do direct, Purposeful Experiencesrefers to? These are our concreteexperiences and first handExperiences that make up thefoundation of our learning. These are the rich experiences thatour senses bring from which weconstruct the ideas, the concepts,the generalization that givemeaning and order to our lives.( Dale, 1969) 3.

INDIRECT ACTIVITIES :Climbing a mountain isfirsthand, direct experience.Seeing it done in films orreading about it is a vicarious,substitute experience. It is aclear, therefore , that we canapproach the world of realitydirectly through the sensesand indirectly with reducedsensory experience. 7. Purposeful because the experiencesare not purely mechanical. They arenot a matter of going through themotion. These are not mere sensoryexcitation. They are experiencesthat are internalized in the sense thatthese experiences involve the askingof questions that have significance inthe life of the person undergoing thedirect experience 8. QUESTION: Why do we want ourstudents to have a directexperience in conductingan experiment in thelaboratory? Where should thesedirect, purposefulexperiences lead us to? 9. It is done in relation to a certain learning objective.Implies that these direct experiences must not be theperiod or the end. We must be brought to a higherplane. The higher plane referred to here is the levelof generalization and abstraction. 10. 1. Give students opportunitiesto learn by doing. 11. 2.
