Learning vs. Unlearning

Over the years, I’ve paid a lot of attention to teaching methods. I’ve done so in my role as a teacher in my work and also as a parent. One thing I’ve come to appreciate is the value of learning the fundamentals of any domain.

Unaided awareness

Seth Godin Blog

Name a brand of sneaker. Name a flavor of ice cream. Name a dead rock star. If you came up with answers like Nike, Chocolate or Prince, you’re not alone. This is unaided awareness, the ability to name a member of a category without having to choose from a list. It’s tempting to want to be the Nike of your category.
