Learning with ‘e’s: 10Q: Cathy N. Davidson

January 23, 2012

Via Scoop.itMore … or less!
“SW: What does brain science contribute to our understanding of how we learn? CND: […] On the positive side, we know is that the brain learns by unlearning: when we are disrupted, when we make a mistake, we build on that. Habits are efficient, but they also get us into a lot of trouble since we can no longer see what is habitual. I believe in calculated, creative disruption as the single most important ingredient in learning. That’s how you write code, of course. You don’t memorize. You work on it until it works and, when it doesn’t, you figure out what does work.”
