4 student misconceptions about learning

Imagine how students would be different if these misconceptions weren't so widespread!

  1. Learning is fast.
  2. Knowledge is composed of isolated facts.
  3. Being good at a subject is due more to inborn talent than hard work.
  4. It's easy to succeed while multitasking.

  1. This is a really good list to keep in mind. I'm curious, though, to what degree students consciously hold these misconceptions and to what degree they just act upon them without thinking. I imagine it's more the latter than the former. Perhaps one of the things we can do to help them change these misconceptions is help them realize that they have them in the first place.
