What is the 10,000 Hour Rule and Why Do Parents Need to Know About It?

What is the 10,000 Hour Rule and Why Do Parents Need to Know About It? | The 10,000-Hour Rule: What Parents Need to Know | Scoop.it

by Ava Arsaga, Parent Cortical Mass

 

When somebody performs in an exceptional way, you might exclaim, "What talent!" But if you refer to the expertise as “talent,” you lose sight of the hard work it took that person to reach such a high level of achievement. You might mistakenly believe an innate ability caused their success. Knowing the 10,000-Hour Rule can free you from the myth of talent.

What Do Kids Really Learn from Failure? | The 10,000-Hour Rule: What Parents Need to Know | Scoop.it

by Alfie Kohn, Huffington Post

 

There's reason to doubt the popular claim that kids have too little experience with failure. Or that more such experience would be good for them. What is clear is that the very environments that play up the importance of doing well make it even less likely that doing poorly will have any beneficial effect.

Deliberate practice may not have nearly as much influence in building expertise as we thought, according to research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. The new study, from psychological scientist Brooke Macnamara of Princeton University and colleagues, indicates that the amount of practice accumulated over time does not seem to play a huge role in accounting for individual differences in skill or performance.

How Technology Enhances Creativity

How Technology Enhances Creativity | The 10,000-Hour Rule: What Parents Need to Know | Scoop.it

by Greg Satell, Innovation Excellence

 

Technology does not quell creativity, in fact, there’s a great deal of evidence that suggests that technology enhances creativity. Certainly, we are expected to be more creative in our working lives than a generation ago. The truth is that by expanding possibilities and automating part of the creative process, we can all be more creative and productive.

Parent Cortical Mass's insight:

Though creativity isn't on the radar of this scoop topic, this was a really good summary of creativity theory.  It also takes on the big data vs creative intuition debate.

 

As Jaron Lanier put it, “in a virtual world of infinite abundance, only creativity could ever be in short supply.”

A new paper by Michael Lombardo, professor of biology at Grand Valley State University, and Robert Deaner, associate professor of psychology, shows that the developmental histories of elite sprinters contradict the popular deliberate practice model of expertise. According to this deliberate model, there is no such thing as innate talent. Instead, 10 years of deliberate practice (roughly 10,000 hours) are necessary and sufficient for anyone to become an expert in any field, including sports.
