Traditional doesn't always mean fun and entertaining. As a matter of fact, these words are usually antonyms and tradition is often associated with words such as boring or dull. This can best be seen when considering teaching methods. The traditional way is more of a mechanical method. In order to acquire a certain knowledge, the individual must repeat it (either by reading, speaking or practicing it) until it becomes interiorized. Although it doesn't fail, this method has a downside. Knowledge "mechanically" acquired is sometimes poorly understood and can be rapidly forgotten.
It's not that the method itself is faulty, but its problem can be thought to be located in the feelings it elicits in the individual. Conscious learning is often considered a burden and the following lack of interest in the knowledge that may arise leads to the consequences discussed.
More interactive and fun ways of learning, on the other hand, don't have the same problems. If learning is performed as a game, the idea of a burden doesn't even appear to the mind and knowledge can be acquired without even realizing it and it can be a lot more durable and well understood.
