Research » Why Floundering Makes Learning Better | Moral Development | Scoop.it
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 we apply this paradigm to Moral development?
