The Future Of Learning
What is going to be the future of learning? Could you imagine a future where kids didn’t go to school, read books and learn to write! The way we teach is changing.
This is an inspiring talk by Dr. Sugata Mitra, towards the middle of the talk he refers to the threat of learning and refers to neuroscience studies about the reptilian part of our brain which sits in the center of the Brain.
“When it’s threaten it shuts down everything else, it shuts down the prefrontal cortex the parts which learn. It shuts all of that down. Punishment and examination are seen as threats”
I’ll let you listen to the rest of the talk below: talk by Dr. Sugata Mitra
“It’s not about making learning happen, it’s about letting it happen”
Here is a counter argument by Martin Robinson
