Malcolm Gladwell Defends Disputed '10,000 Hours' Rule

Malcolm Gladwell Defends Disputed '10,000 Hours' Rule | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Academic fight! Malcolm Gladwell's popular "10,000-hours rule" was debunked in a Sports Illustrated writer's new book, so Gladwell defended his theory by accusing the author of creating a "straw man."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Good practice habits are important. Whether it is 10, 000 hours might be open to discussion, but event the most genetically endowed individuals practice what they do and that is what allows them to excel in their field. The key might be practicing what works. It clearly does not make sense to practice what does not work.

from the article: "Gladwell defended his theory against Epstein's assertions in a piece in The New Yorker, arguing that Epstein did not actually debunk the 10,000-hour rule as he explained it. "Epstein has written a wonderful book. But I wonder if, in his zeal to stake out a provocative claim on this one matter, he has built himself a straw man." You see, Gladwell only applied the 10,000-hour rule to cognitively demanding activities that needed significant thought, unlike those runners and dart-throwers.

MBE helps us understand how deeply emotion and other environmental factors affect learning - something teachers have known for years but now have science to back it up!
