Student or Learner
In neither of your examples is there the context of something being on the ground and needing to be picked up.

I would have written the highlighed parts as "need to be picked up". Could you tell me why here "needing", a gerund is used?
If possible, could you provide me some examples of this kind?
I don't like you(r) answering me back like that!
