Absolutely, its the impasse where real learning takes places. Manu Kapur has a great presentation about this http://youtu.be/LnljG9I33KM

Needs more research.

They are probably getting help. It is just subtle and part of the general learning environment that is created by good teachers.

Yes i totally agree with the author. Allowing kids to strugggle as they learn will make them understand and solve the problem better.

 

I think that the education system will change, as now of days, the teachers usually guide the students on how to solve the problem. But now after it is proven that allowing the students to struggle will let the students learn better. The school should adapt and instead of guiding the students,they should only explain the problem and allow the students to solve it themselves.

 

Some of the bad influence will be that the student will find the problems to hard and give up more easily or start to hate school.

Some good influence are that the student may learn better and will very much help in their futures.

 

Everyone benifits from it as the students will learn better and also learn more values like not giving up easily. Besides the students the economy  will also benifit as when the student start working, it would be easier for him to understand and adapt and Singapore economy could improve faster.

 

No it is not foolproof as everychild is different. So diffferent students may take different time to understand or they may not even understand at all.
