10,000 Hours to Mastery: The Gladwell Effect on Learning Design

10,000 Hours to Mastery: The Gladwell Effect on Learning Design | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
I just finished reading Malcom Gladwell’s latest book, Outliers. In one of its chapters, he explains the 10,000-hour rule.

 

Great book.  I saw this come alive in my son who, at 16 "wanted to be a musician" but was going through a period where hanging out with friends was all he could think about.  Having read the book, I challenged him to the 10,000 hours premise (and asked that if he wanted my backing on the music, he had to Prove to me his sincerity).  Well.........he became hyperfocused at that point and indeed, mastered percussion in ways that astounded me.  

 

Practice.  A vital piece of mastery.  Without time on task, you have mediocrity.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 1, 10:38 AM

When I coached hockey, I used to tell my players and parents that if you practice something well for 10, 000 hours expect good results. If you practice something poorly for 10, 000 hours, expect frustration and poor results. I think when people realize doing something well requires commitment and perseverance to practice they can become enlivened in their learning.
