Thanks for the comments and I think you are dead-on. One thing that really frustrates me is when issues like the ones raised by Ledoux don't seem to translate into how our principles of design need to shift as well.



Great post. I too like the big questions on The Edge and monitor the Learning and Memory Journal with interest, searching out pieces that might translate into practice. Ledoux's quote above does suggest we really aren't doing anywhere near enough to deal with the lack of follow through and support after learning activities - indeed we should be strongly questioning concentrated blocks of "learning" when the evidence appears to be pointing more and more strongly to model built on interval-based reinforcement.

Quoth she/he...

  • "The hallmark of revolution is that the goals of the revolutionaries cannot be contained by the institutional structure of the society they live in. As a result, either the revolutionaries are put down, or some of those institutions are transmogrified, replaced, or simply destroyed. We are plainly witnessing a restructuring of the music and newspaper businesses, but their suffering isn’t unique, it’s prophetic." --Clay Shirky
