Deliberately difficult - why it's better to make learning harder - David Didau: The Learning Spy

Deliberately difficult - why it's better to make learning harder - David Didau: The Learning Spy | Outstanding Lessons | Scoop.it
The most fundamental goals of education are long-term goals. As teachers and educators, we want targeted knowledge and skills to be acquired in a way that makes them durable and flexible. More specifically, we want a student’s educational experience to produce a mental representation of the knowledge or skill in question that fosters long-term access
CCG_TeachingForum's insight:

Adding more diffculity to lessons and encourgaing learners to 'struggle' sounds quite odd, but it might help the learners in the long term learn more. A tricky concept but worth a look.

Have you ever noticed that often, when someone is being interviewed, they say “That’s a good question.”? It’s usually when it’s a question they can’t answer quickly and easily. Indeed, “good” questions are ones that generally need thinking about.
