Call it the "learning paradox": the more you struggle and even fail while you're trying to master new information, the better you're likely to recall and apply that information later.

 

"The learning paradox is at the heart of 'productive failure,' a phenomenon identified by Manu Kapur. ... Kapur points out that while the model adopted by many teachers and employers when introducing others to new knowledge — providing lots of structure and guidance early on, until the students or workers show that they can do it on their own — makes intuitive sense, it may not be the best way to promote learning. Rather, it’s better to let the neophytes wrestle with the material on their own for a while, refraining from giving them any assistance at the start."

Can you apply Google's 20% time in the classroom?

Can you apply Google's 20% time in the classroom? | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

From the article:  "Google offers its engineers 20% of their timetable to work on their own projects – things that they are truly passionate about and not things necessarily in their job description. Fairly radical. And I couldn't help thinking, if it works for Google, could it work for education?"
