Learning to Learn - what's new?

A recurring theme:  Learning to Learn.

  • "Talking to Yourself (Out Loud) Can Help You Learn," by Ulrich Boser, May 05, 2017.
  • "If You're Not Outside Your Comfort Zone, You Won't Learn Anything," by Andy Molinsky, July 29, 2016.
  • "Learning to Learn," by Erika Anderson, March 2016.
  • "You Can Learn and Get Work Done at the Same Time," by Liane Davey, January 11, 2016.
  • "4 Ways to Become a Better Learner," by Monique Valcour, December 31, 2015. 
All in the Harvard Business Review.  I don't care how much AI and machine learning are going to transform our world, I'm ready to bet that learning to learn with our own little human brains is never going to be obsolete. In fact, critical thinking and rapid learning are going to be at a premium.

Too funny:  As I was ready to publish this little item, I came across the following:

  • "In the AI Age, "Being Smart" Will Mean Something Completely Different," by Ed Hess, June 19, 2017, Harvard Business Review.
