Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, December 11, 2015 5:10 AM

There is a difference in learning and sharing, we can share some things we are not able to learn. As slaves couldn't read words but they taught the ways of their lives required to be lived instead! As grandma would say having all the book sense with no good common sense don't amount to nothing. Knowing how go read a book about how to change a light bulb but having no good common sense on how to perform it makes you a person with plenty of book sense sitting on the dark at night because you don't have the good common sense on how to do what the book said. Grandma and them had a way about telling the truth as it was said if you don't want to know the truth Grandma and them style don't ask them! Learning comes in different ways not all work the same! Don't judge another because they learn differently but always remember 

what doesn't work for you just might work fine for another!

The Monetarist Mistake

The Monetarist Mistake | Thinking and Learning | Scoop.it
The inadequate response to the Great Recession reflects policymakers' acceptance of Milton Friedman's analysis of the Great Depression. And yet the dominance of Friedman's monetarism has less to do with the evidence supporting it than with the fact that economics is all too often tainted by politics.

Interesting.

Bilingualism changes children's beliefs

Bilingualism changes children's beliefs | Thinking and Learning | Scoop.it
Most young children are essentialists: They believe that human and animal characteristics are innate. That kind of reasoning can lead them to think that traits like native language and clothing preference are intrinsic rather than acquired. But a new study suggests that certain bilingual kids are more likely to understand that it's what one learns, rather than what one is born with, that makes up a person's psychological attributes.
Afelio Padilla's insight:

Somehow, the size of our inner universe depends on the number of objects that can name. "Learning" is the engine of the expansion of our universe.

People prefer fair, but does the brain?

People prefer fair, but does the brain? | Thinking and Learning | Scoop.it
Whether for oneself or for others, fairness is preferred by people, but the brain network changes depending on who is actually benefiting. "In previous studies," explains the lead investigator, "we found the same tendency to reject unfair offers regardless of whether the decision involved the subjects themselves or a third party. Brain imaging, however, suggested that the brain was working differently in the two situations."
