Learning comes from observation(hands off) and imitation(hands on).
Observation- A good observing includes that opening our ears and eyes, judging the authority of what we observed, analyzing the advantages and the disadvantages, considering our situation, and to be ready for the adventure.
Imitation- A good imitating is based on specific and detailed analysis, choosing a satisfied model and practicing a same activity.
Pro-imitation=Creation- Deleting and adding what we learned, saving and updating what we experimented, adapting our students, schools.
