davidgibson's curator insight, June 1, 2013 7:04 PM

...evidence continues to mount and looks good, but more work is needed to establish the links - (aren't these links also in every other kind of learning there is? If someone has no motivation and a bad attitude, which direction do you think "learning effectiveness" would go as the system evolved - up or down? I think the links will be found, and in the directions we expect.
