To most of us, learning something “the hard way” implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners.
In his mega bestseller, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, world-famous psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems shape our judgments and decisions.
Let’s face it, we live in a fast paced world. In order to succeed, you must have the ability to absorb information rapidly, and to think logically and creatively all at the same time. Students must discover how to conquer the high-pressure challenges of an intensely competitive society. With technology on the rise, knowing how to learn efficiently will be the most important skill you ever possess. Unfortunately, most of us were never taught the actual art of learning. Many students struggle, not because they aren’t smart, but because they simply were never taught the rare techniques presented in this book. Well, that’s all about to change!
