and most do not have
I recently learned about the concept of The Learn-It-All on this podcast.
Most schools unintentionally support a know-it-all cultures. How? They
- Ask questions that mostly have just right answers.
- Support competition that rewards those with immediate response.
- Create projects that have an end (we know it all, so we are done.)
The product of a know-it-all culture can give you all the facts and theories, but is not able to talk about how they are tested, or put into practice. A know-it-all does well on tests, and in traditional schools, but does that translate into life?
