Excellent book that distills out the key principles related to learning. These include:


  • Learning is facilitated by connections between the new and the familiar
  • Learning is facilitated by deliberate practice – salient feedback that draw learner focus
  • Deep learning (understanding) facilitates transfer
  • Deep learning is time consuming
  • Motivation matters
