[tweetmeme] I’ve been focused more and more lately on how we learn. This has led me to re-read Stephen Pinker’s How the Mind Works, which – whether you ultimately agree with Pinker’s views or not – really is a must-read for anyone passionate about learning. (I’m moving on now to re-reading his earlier The Language Instinct.)
I also Googled the phrase “how we learn” – surely not for the first time? – and noted immediately that a TED channel titled “How We Learn” comes up near the top of the results. That led me to the following, recently-posted video featuring Adora Svitak. No doubt this has already made the rounds out yonder on the Web, but I am a little behind on my blog reading these days. And besides, if you have seen it before you already know it is worth seeing again.
