Real Learning

@gnat points to this excellent summary of how to send purposeful learning crashing into kids heads.

We can only learn through crisis and disruption to existing assumptions and patterns of knowledge – the macro process of science, as reflected by Kuhn or others can also be seen in the micro process of a child learning about the world, who must continually transform and throw away aspects of their existing worldview as they develop a more nuanced understanding of language and reality.
