What is the difference between education done by computer videos and the real life version, and which is better?
I think this is a surprisingly obvious way to help increase overall mastery of subjects, and am amazed it's taken this long to figure out. I teach a car control clinic for new drivers (15-16 y/o) and our whole mantra is that you can learn about car control as much as you want, but there is no way you will ever be able to confidently perform the task without actually doing it. There is no substitute for the real thing. I can lecture all day, but until those kids get out in the parking lot and start doing the exercises, they won't actually learn a thing. I don't see why basic education shouldn't function the same way, you can listen to the teacher talk and draw diagrams, but they wont make actual sense until you put in the time to do the work. When you do that work at home and you get stuck, you don't really have the network to help you get unstuck and move forward. But with this program, you're doing the work with the network at your side, greatly increasing your chances of figuring out the problem and moving ahead. Now if I could only figure out a way to incorporate this into my clinic.
