I hear over and over that school is "not natural" for kids. That is a non-argument. Most of what we do is not "natural". Our own work environments are *not* natural. Driving 1.4 tons of metal is not natural. Reading, calculating, building are not.

Why can't ed. research get to the classroom? “It was fascinating to hear the teachers and admins say, 'Someone should research this,' and the [researchers] are biting their tongues saying, 'We spend $50 million researching that! We have that answer!'"

That misery is due not only to the school system but to the complexity and difficulty of knowledge, too. We need to be fair in assessing what is wrong with schools (e.g. overtesting, crowded classroom, low budgets etc.) and what is a result of pure academic learning.

So do I. Changes in the ed. system are necessary but to deny the importance of school is an entirely different manner.

As a lecturer in the School of Education (University of Sydney) he surely did. Besides, it is a well-known distinction in ed. research and evolutionary psychology. Studies of both in- and outside of school learning made the very distinction possible.

Not really. Academic learning is biologically secondary knowledge. Learning to speak is biologically primary knowledge - effortless, gained through simple immersion. Writing, reading, algebra and the rest require more effort and guidance.

Some teachers say they cannot take advice from people who haven’t taught for as long as they have, & decry educational researchers’ advice. Research is about providing insight, developing principles, extending our knowledge base. It needs translating across practice boundaries.

Isn't it natural? There are millions of people who engage on social media and the odds are always that you would upset someone. Millions of views and differences are not an easy burden for a public presence...

Joe Rogan has over 4 milion subscribers but he has over 2,000 uploads unlike you (you have only 347). The ratio is in your favor.

Great list and difficult to choose! 1. Sapiens 2. The Long Summer 3. Guns, Gems, and Steel I guess I am being subjective but these would be my choices, Victor.

If you want your kids to have more independence and less device time, it helps to coordinate with other parents, and your kids' school principal. Send them this video, which makes the case for simple norms likely to produce stronger kids.

A meta-analysis of 64 studies finds that self-explanation (e.g., asking students "Could you explain this to someone else") during instruction has a substantial impact on learning (g~0.55): ($)
