“The Cone is a visual analogy, and like all analogies, it does not bear an exact and detailed relationship to complex elements it represents.” - Edgar Dale -
Given 11 randomized bands of the Cone of Experience, arrange the jumbled bands in order inside a cone according to the degree of abstraction.

First hand experience that serve as the foundation of learning. Learning by doing.
We make use of a representative models or mock ups of reality for practical reasons.
By dramatization, we can participate in a reconstructed experience even though the original event is far removed from us in time.
A visualized explanation of an important fact, idea, or process by the use of photographs, drawings, films, displays, or guided motion.
Excursions or visits conducted to observe an event that is unavailable inside the classroom.
Displays to be seen by spectators.
Reconstruct reality of the past so effectively.
These are visual and auditory devices may be used by individual or group.
No longer realistic reproduction of physical things for these are highly abstract representation. Charts, graphs, maps, diagram
These are not like object or ideas for which they stand. They usually do not contain a visual clues to their meaning.
What are the implications of the cone of experience in the teaching learning process?
DDDDo not use only one medium of communication. DDDDo not proceed with the abstract without adequate foundation of the concrete.
DDDDon’t get stuck with the concrete. Let us strive to bring our students to the symbolic abstract level to develop their higher thinking skills.
IIIIf you teach a lesson on the meaning of ½, 1/3, and ¼ how will you proceed if you follow the pattern in Dale’s Cone of Experience beginning with the concrete moving toward the abstract.
HHHHow does the dictum in philosophy “there is nothing in mind that was not first in the senses” relate what you learned from the cone of experience?
AAAAlfred North Whitehead said: “In the Garden of Eden, Adam saw the animals before he named them. In the traditional system, children name the animals before they see them.” How would you relate this remark to the Cone of Experience?
