Applying the skills you have learned outside of class is as important as learning them in class. On average, it takes a human three times of using the information to learn it.Think about learning how to ride a bike. You are first taught how to ride with training wheels, then you practice riding without them with a parent helping you, and eventually, you are able to ride all by yourself. It is the same with learning anything. You must first practice with the teacher (training wheels), then with a little help (without training wheels), and eventually, you can apply what you have learned on your own (riding by yourself). If you skip any of those steps, you will not learn the skill you are taught.
