Now You See It by Cathy Davidson

Learning Ourselves

  • This chapter starts with an explanation of how neurons are trimmed and bundled as humans develop. The laying down of patterns causes efficiencies that serve us until something comes along to distract our efficiency, which causes new patterns to form. Distractions are thus tools for innovations. While some are concerned about how distractions on the Internet may affect learning and thinking, the Internet is here to stay so we need to prepare children for the vast, decentralized, interconnected world they will live in. This is not the type of thinking and attention suited to an industrial worker. Sadly, our current national education policy is based on this standardized, machine-readable multiple choice test learning style.
