Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Excellent Review of Dale's Cone and its Bastardizations:



Since I read this post and responded, according to Dale I'll remember 37.5%, right?


Great article. It brought to my mind Gardner's work on learning intelligences, and issues such as dyslexia - presumably these statistics cited in so much research are representing "average" retention rates of a large population. I'd love to know how they were reached!


Thank you for the work you do. I wish you'd talk to my district. They show us that cone at just about every professional development meeting we attend.

Will, many thanks for continuing on the case with this myth. I wrote it up for the UK training site Training Zone (http://www.trainingzone.co.uk/cgi-bin/item.cgi?id=185067) - referencing your work and questioning why the learning profession seems to love these myths so much.
