Mindsets: Why Do Some People Learn Faster?

Mindsets: Why Do Some People Learn Faster? | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Do we ignore mistakes, brushing them aside for the sake of our self-confidence? Or do we investigate the errors, seeking to learn from the snafus? The latter approach, suggests a series of studies, could make you learn faster.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 10, 2014 2:20 PM

There is a new question about knowledge and sustaining the community. In the high-paced world we live in, has school, as we currently have it structured, meeting the demands? I think we believe school is a place that expresses common knowledge, but there are some who think it is a place of innovation. I think it has outlived its usefulness and should be a place where students and teachers learn the skills, attitudes, dispositions, etc. that help them decipher the information they come in contact with and can wisely apply it. This will take talented teachers.

The Myth Of The Bell Curve: Look For The Hyper-Performers

The Myth Of The Bell Curve: Look For The Hyper-Performers | Education and Training | Scoop.it
There is a long standing belief in business that people performance follows the Bell Curve (also called the Normal Distribution). This belief has been embedded in many business practices: performance appraisals, compensation models, and even how we get graded in school. (Remember "grading by the curve?") Research shows that this statistical model, while easy to [...]

Lindsey Adams's curator insight, March 3, 2014 10:41 PM

While this article discuses the use of the bell curve in the business environment, it can easily be transfered over to education. It discuses the misrepresentation of performance using the curve and how the curve engourages average performances.
