Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning
by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, Mark A. McDaniel
Make It Stick is all about the science of successful learning. (Key word: ’science.’) Most of us believe that, in order to learn something, we should make it as simple as possible for ourselves to do so… After all, if we had a choice between two ways to learn the same thing—one hard, the other easy—wouldn’t it make more sense to make use of the easiest way to learn, rather than the more difficult and effortful method of learning? Make It Stick turns traditional 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. Perfect for people of all ages and walks of life—from students to moms to fortune 500 hundred CEOs—the big ideas from Make It Stick can be put to use by all of us interested in strengthening our learning skills and applying them both personally and professionally.
