95% we learn of what we teach to others

What William Glasser says above it convinces me and triggers my thinking how we acquire knowledge. If we only read books we tend to easily forget what we have read. Receptive skills including reading and listening are passive as we get the information. Sometimes the information remains in our head but mostly it just goes through. According to the saying, productive skills like speaking or writing can extend the information and produce a better understanding and we learn extensively. I still remember when i was in the States most of my professors made an active engagement to all students to discuss rather than lecturing.

Can we apply this theory into Thai classroom by asking our students to discuss and share ideas and experiences? How can we make it?
