We may graduate from school, but we never stop learning. New jobs, new roles, new relationships: all require the acquisition of new knowledge. To stop learning is to stop improving.


Despite its importance, so many of us develop bad habits and faulty techniques that undermine our ability learn effectively, says Nate Kornell, an associate professor of cognitive psychology at Williams College who studies learning strategies.

Below, Kornell outlines three fundamental principles to learn by. 

 

1. Embrace discomfort

2. Stop cramming

3. Make connections

Kathy Lynch's insight:
Thx Gust Mees! 3 Common mistakes we all make in Learning. My students often get caught at #1, Embrace discomfort, because they do not appreciate the key fact that "Effective Learning feels difficult". Cramming (#2) has never worked to help us retain learning; we must space and layer our practice. Finally, connect the learning to our lives and current knowledge.

There is an emerging opportunity to boost student achievement and improve working for teachers here in the U.S (and worldwide)–and a huge opportunity to expand access to quality learning to every young person on earth. That’s the most interesting and important thing anyone could work on.


===> The opportunity is to make learning more compelling, customized, connected and competency-based. <===



Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, June 15, 2014 2:34 AM

Compelling, customized (I like personalized better, but it's not a "C")' connected, and competency-based lea earning will all be a part of the future of learning. And as learners become more independent and are given an environment that supports freedom of exploration, they will also become more self-determined. Sounds like Heutagogy!

Expanding access to quality learning...for every young person on earth?
