Common Myths about Learning...
How many do you believe?
Everyone starts with the same base of knowledge about a particular subject.
Everyone learns at the same pace.
Everyone learns best by listening.
Everyone will bridge naturally from theory to application.
Everyone should learn on his or her own rather than in collaboration.
Learning is the transfer of knowledge from a teacher to a passive learner.
"We don't remember information totally; we reconstruct the way information
connects to [other] information,"..."That means learners have to reconstruct
the interconnectors or forget what they've learned in a short time. The
stuff you remember is what you use to make the interconnections."
